There's a new dahlia at Springwell Gardens- "Karma Chocolate". It's a rich dark red with a chocolate-red center. And it's absolutely stunning.
It's featured in this bouquet with lavender and white summer phlox, pink zinnias and lisianthus, lavender and white foxglove, Black Knight scabiosa, and a burgundy-black collar of perilla leaves.
Karma Dahlias have been bred especially for cut flower use, and they come in an array of beautiful colors. One good source for the tubers is: Eden Brothers.
There has been plenty of rain this summer, so the plants have been performing very well.
