This black beauty, being one of the best reds ideally suited for cutting, produces a profusion of long-stemmed, rich velvety-black blooms. A must grow for the dahlia enthusiasts of dark reds! The red burgundy shade appears almost black, striking among its deep green leaves. Outstanding in bouquets with lighter or vibrant color schemes. Usually, not an abundant tuber maker, therefore, snatch it when you can!
