Spartacus, with its massive blooms and overflowing petals, arranged in layers upon layers of pure luxuriousness, is an exotic-looking dahlia variety. Its deep red velvety blooms will be mesmerizing, brightening up summer borders and add a splash of color in cut flower arrangements. If deep red is what you love, Spartacus will entice the dahlia grower in you! One of my personal favorites, grown in masses in my garden.
