Some things don’t change over time. One of these is the Dahlia Contraste. This Dahlia is still as beautiful, popular and striking as it was when it was introduced way back in 1957. The large showy double form bloom with its extra layers of petals measures between 15 and 23 cm (6 to 9 inches) and the plant makes good use of that space to show off its wonderful contrast of colours.

By planting Dahlia Contraste, you can expect butterflies and other pollinators flying around your garden or patio all Summer!

The bi-colour slightly scooped petals of Dahlia Contraste take a mix of purplish maroon from the base to wash into snow white tips. The flower glows richly and royally as a result, with the white tips adding light and dimension to this matriarch of the dahlia world.
