Good for cutting

Perhaps the name Dark Horse for this large-flowering dinnerplate dahlia is because the flower is a little unpredictable in the colour it chooses for its appearance. The name can have no reference to the Dahlia’s performance – there’s no question this up to 10 inch or 30 cm bloom can be anything but up there with the leaders across the finish line. The only variable is what colours this charming flower will be wearing at the time.

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

Dahlia Dark Horse’s petals all feature white tips to the petals, but the width of those tips and the colour that bursts from the centre can vary from candy pink or fuchsia to such a dark pink it can almost classify as red.
