Description

Settle into a balmy summer evening in the company of this dusky delight, Dahlia 'Crème de Cognac'. Burnished and coppery with a sunset glow, each petal is a blend of pink, peach and tawny-orange with a cheeky dash of berry red on the underside which makes an amazing two-tone contrast. Bold and toasty autumnal hues like this are a big deal in the dahlia world. Not only are the flowers like individual works of art with such fine details, but they also throw in a cosy warmth to a planting scheme.

 This prolific variety treats you to fully double, petal-packed bloom after bloom all through the summer and into autumn, perfect for the garden and a long lasting supply of material for cut flower arrangements. Try planting this one with purple, peach or deep red dahlias or even dark-leaved cannas for a really sizzly colour combo. Or why not create a cocktail corner and invite equally gorgeous Dahlia 'Crème de Cognac'!
