UK: New Plant Heritage Dahlia named ‘Chatsworth Splendour’
The winning name Dahlia ‘Chatsworth Splendour’ came from Ruth Van Gemeren of Chesterfield Garden Centre, a family owned business less than 10 miles down the road from Chatsworth itself. Ruth said:
“Being so close to Chatsworth ourselves, we felt this gorgeous flower should be named after it, especially as it was launched at the first ever RHS Chatsworth Flower Show. We’re thrilled that such a suitable name has been chosen!”
Chatsworth, which hosted the newest RHS Flower Show in June this year, is home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, and has been passed down through 16 generations of the Cavendish family. The Duke and Dutchess, as well as Chatsworth’s Head Gardener, Steve Porter, are all delighted with the name and are hoping to grow it in the Kitchen garden there.
The RHS are thrilled to have this new flower named after the show and Jenny Jenner, Show Manager, RHS Chatsworth Flower Show said:
“Visitors to the show picked well with the name ‘Chatsworth Splendour’ which really captures the beauty of this new Dahlia with its elegant flowers set off by glorious dark foliage.”
The National Dahlia Collection chose the winning name and Director, Mike Mann said:
“Given that we launched the new plant at RHS Chatsworth Flower Show, it seemed fitting to have Chatsworth in the name and we think it is a splendid variety so 'Chatsworth Splendour' comes nicely to mind.”
The flower is being launched with its new label in the National Dahlia Collection’s Gold Medal winning display at RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show 4-9th July.
The National Dahlia Collection will have limited availability of Dahlia 'Chatsworth Splendour' in 2018, but will have fuller availability in future years. They will very generously make a 50p donation for every plant sold to support Plant Heritage’s conservation work through the National Plant Collections.
