The scoop on Dahlia Waltzing Mathilda

Some dahlia plants mature to an enormous size and are challenging to site in a home garden. Not Waltzing Mathilda. This dark leafed, open-faced beauty grows to just 3 feet and is covered with semi double coral raspberry flowers accented with gold centers. Excellent for cutting or garden use. Site in front of a light colored wall or fence for maximum impact. According to one of our customers in the Northwest, this dahlia is a hummingbird's delight. And as for credentials, Waltzing Mathilda has earned Royal Horticultural Award of Garden Merit, which is a big deal.

Why Grow Cutting Dahlias?

  • Few flowers offer the color and form diversity of dahlias
  • This variety has been trialed and recommended for cut flower use
  • Extend vase life by cutting early in the day, after dew has evaporated and when buds are three quarters open
  • The more flowers you cut, the more the plant produces
