MYSTIC DAHLIA

Dahlia Mystic™ Enchantment is a striking dark-leaved flower. Dahlias are old-fashioned favourites for the flower garden. Plants are usually treated as tender perennials, the tubers lifted in the fall and stored indoors for the winter. This selection from the Mystic™ series, features stunning purple-black foliage with a great show of starry single orange-red flowers with a gold-brown eye. Midsized habit. Excellent in containers and in the border. Be on the lookout for aphids and spider mites, and control these as soon as noticed. Terrific for cutting.
