‘Dark Side of the Sun’
Not one of those dwarf “gas station” Dahlias so common nowadays, but a wonderfully rewarding, garden-appropriate Keith Hammett variety that grows 3-4’ tall and 3-4’ across and blooms for months Summer thru Fall, especially with deadheading. A thing of beauty in the garden (or in a large container, 25+ gal.) with luscious chocolate-black foliage in exquisite contrast to the golden yellow, single, 4” blooms brushed with apricot. Rich, loamy soil. Deciduous. Top dress with 1-2” of compost in Spring for best show. Bees! Cut flowers! May ship dormant thru May.
