Dahlia 'Dad's Favorite'

Dahlia 'Dad's Favorite'



Sold Out

'Dad's Favorite' is also one of ours, and photos don't do these 5" anemone blooms justice—trust. The flowers begin a deep lilac and gradually lighten with age. Its puffy pincushion center is purple ringed with gold—some more, some less. These gorgeous variations and its prolific bloom period—one of the first tubers to produce flowers and one of the last to finish—make 'Dad's Favorite' a must-have.

Tubers are sold individually, and come in a Plover fabric bag with a custom wooden stake and planting instructions.
