Cactus dahlia tubers
Cactus dahlias are the favourite of many gardeners. These are exciting flowers and often have fierce colours. This type of flower stands out among the other dahlias.
Cactus dahlias flower from the end of June until the first night of frost. This is often in October or November. Many other flowers have already stopped flowering by then. So, if you choose for dahlias, you can enjoy your flowers longer.
Cactus dahlias are named after the cactus. This is because the dahlia cactus has rolled-up petals. These look like spines of the cactus. So, they have this name because the dahlias have cactus spines, just like cactuses.
The extraordinary of the cactus dahlia
The dahlia cactus is a very special flower. One of the most extraordinary of the dahlias. The flower petals are for 2/3 rolled up, this gives a remarkable spiky tint.
The petals can be rolled op to the inside or to the outside. This causes the more muddled view. The petals are narrow and spiky, that is because the petals are rolled up. The tops of the dahlia cactus are often deeply incised, this gives an even more extraordinary view.
The special shape of these dahlias ensure that the rain easily flows out the petals. This causes that the top does not get very heavy. Therefore, these dahlias stay upright in the rain while other flowers would subside.
Cactus dahlias exist in much different colours, height and size. We have dahlias in a lot of different colours: yellow dahlias, orange dahlias, white dahlias , purple dahlias, pink dahlias and red dahlias.

History of cactus dahlias
The dahlia originally comes from Mexico. They were grown so they could be eaten and used as a medicine.
In Mexico it is much warmer than in the Netherlands. For that reason, cactus dahlias love heat. You can best plant the cactus dahlia tubers in a warm spot, where it catches a lot of sunlight. Also plant the tubers after the change of frost is over. The tubers aren't perennial, they can't withstand the cold.
