Dahlia 'Ilse' displays large, ball-type flowers of pink with hints of yellow on long stems.
Dahlia 'Ilse' is a beauty for the mid to back of the garden with hypnotic, large, ball-type, fully double blooms of pretty pink with hints of yellow at the core all held on tall strong stems. Fantastic as cut flowers too. Dahlia are hardy to coastal BC's winter temperatures but not to winter wet. Protect from rain in free-draining soils, plant in pots that can be moved and protected, or lift and store in a cool, dry, frost free location. They are moderately deer resistant.
