Dahlia Decorative Duet

Dahlia Decorative Duet

A striking red dahlia that really stands out in garden beds and borders, Duet flaunts and abundance of big, fully double flowers over an extended bloom time. The deep red petals are tipped in snowy white—the contrasting coloration adding a hint of brashness to the extra-large 7–9" blooms. Butterflies simply adore the color and will flock to the landscape to get a closer look. Makes an exceptional border planting, as well as a cutting garden must-have in the late season. Plant in groups for maximum impact. A gardener favorite for over 60 years!
