This amethyst-hued gem of a decorative dahlia in bloom, can stimulate and sooth emotions alike, complementing any color palette one could dream of! Purple hearts, brushed with a touch of gold at petal base, and lilac-purple underside and tips, ornate these bloomers. The energy or presence this dahlia exudes is best expressed as an amethyst, refined into a magnificent specimen by nature’s hand! An early-blooming, floriferous dahlia with exceptionally long, sturdy stems and vigorous plant growth, stirs up delightful visual artistry in floral designs. It is recommended, removing the apical dominance twice (double pinching) to encourage the plant’s lateral growth, shorter stature, and fuller, lusher performance.
Origin: A seedling from Trevor Hoff of Cable Bay Dahlias, named by Lou Clell of Dodge City Dahlias and Karen from Bowser.
