'Twyning's After Eight' is a single-flowered dahlia with dark leaves, ideal for borders.
'Brantwood' is another single-flowered dahlia.
'Fascination' is a small waterlily or dwarf bedding dahlia. It has dark, blackish-brown foliage and is of a diminutive height, ideal for the front of the border.
'Gwyneth' is a small waterlily dahlia. Its long stems make it a great cut flower and a useful cultivar for the show bench.
'Taratahi Ruby' is a small waterlily dahlia. Don't be put off by its strong red hues; these fit perfectly with the vibrant tints of autumn. This variety is also a prolific bloomer, producing a display between July and the first frosts.
'Hillcrest Royal' is a medium cactus-flowered dahlia. The intense pinky red blooms mix surprisingly well with other border plants, such as persicaria and tender salvias. The neat form has helped ensure its popularity on the show bench too.
'Ken's Choice' is a small ball dahlia. The quilled petals form neat patterns in the flower, and the back petals do not drop as quickly as some cultivars.
'Kiwi Gloria' is a semi-cactus form. It has stout stems and a tidy form, which are good for the show bench, but the cultivar doesn't make sturdy tubers so can be difficult to overwinter.
