Dahlia are tuberous rooted perennials with pinnately divided leaves and showy flowerheads, double in many cultivars, in summer and autumn. Single-flowered dahlias have flowerheads usually less than 10cm across, with one or two rows of spreading ray florets, surrounding a central boss of small tubular disc florets which are valuable for bees and butterflies. ‘Bright Eyes’ is a single-flowered cultivar, to 1m in height. It bears flowers with pinky-purple petals, yellow at the base and with a yellow eye on dark stems above green foliage in summer and early autumn. Full sun and moist but well-drained soil.
