DAHLIA, Mystic Dreamer

Dahlia-Mystic-Dreamer-Website

Accomplished New Zealand breeder Dr. Keith Hammett has spent years working on a distinctive new Dahlia series of fashionable, more contemporary kinds of plants perfect for today’s gardens. These beauties are set apart from other Dahlia varieties by their delicate deep mahogany to black foliage topped with masses of rich flower coloured blooms. They have strong sturdy stems and do not require staking. Dreamer has pretty soft pink and cream striped blooms with golden centers. The Mystic Dahlia series are low maintenance and are ideal for containers, borders, and garden beds. These spectacular flowers attract bees and butterflies and make exceptional cut flowers. Deadhead spent flowers to extend blooming time.
