Cactus Dahlia Black Narcissus

Cactus Dahlia Black Narcissus

With the exotic look of a rare desert flower, this semi-cactus type dahlia makes quite a scene in the garden or in a vase. The deep red, spiky petals of the 6" wide blooms are sure to turn heads, especially when the plants are grouped together—either as a single-variety display or when combined with light or white blooms. Black Narcissus gives such a punch of unique color and unusual style to midsummer properties, your customers will be begging for more each growing season. We suggest planting Black Narcissus in borders, cutting gardens or landscape beds that get full sun and are well drained. Flowers keep coming until the first frost, so there are plenty to enjoy indoors, too. Lift in fall in zones 3-8.
