Dahlia 'Rock Star'

Dahlia 'Rock Star'



‘Rock Star’ brings the drama. This dark stunner has 3” anemone blooms in our favorite shade of deep magenta. Her petals have a touch of pink at the outer edges that look almost iridescent in the sun. While she’s still opening, her pincushion center is a dark wine color, but as her blooms fully open, the center puff becomes flecked with a gorgeous gold and her petals stretch out behind her. One of our favorites.
