Description

Originally introduced to help create floral artworks in pots, the gallery collection of Dahlias has proved so beautiful and so popular they have split over into use in borders and anywhere else their compact plants covered with stunning flowers can find a place in the garden. But gallery collection plants like Dahlia 'Rivera' do still make an extra special statement in pots on your patio, or as cut flowers for indoor display.

Dahlia 'Rivera' is a vibrant red bloom with just a hint of black peeking through the centre petals. All petals in this multi-layer bloom are scooped, so adding depth to the showy flower with the play of shadows that results.
