Hillcrest Duncan Edwards is a Large Semi-cactus dahlia. This prize winning cultivar was raised and named by Les Jackson in tribute to the late ‘Busby Babe’ Duncan Edwards who died in the 1958 Manchester United Munich Air Crash. It took 50 years for him to breed a cultivar with the required qualities – “a football-sized bloom, perfect symmetry, and the right rich red colour, not prone to fading”.

Available as  garden ready plants  in 1 ltr pots
