Dahlia fimbriata Dark Horse
Large 9 inch blooms in bold purple-red petals with white tips will be the pride of the cut-flower garden. Best planted with Rudbeckia Indian summer Tuberose Pearl Liatris Floristan Kobold or Zinnia Senora. Fewer flowers say summer like the bold blooms of dahlias. These favorite plants come in two basic types: compact bedding forms and tall border types. Both have upright stems and grow from tuberous roots. They come in an amazing range of colors and flower forms from single small daisy-like blooms to huge ruffled flowers up to eight inches across. Compact bedding dahlias are ideal for container gardens and for edging beds. Use the border types to add height and color to gardens in late summer to fall. Dahlias also make great cut flowers....
