This new decorative-type dahlia puts its best face forward in the landscape and the vase! Gorgeous one-of-a-kind flowers are 4" wide, fully double and boast a pale lilac color with deep, cassis-hued reverse on each petal. Plus, the dramatic dark burgundy-purple color is repeated at the center of each bloom. We love showy Crème de Cassis in groups along sunny borders and flanking entryways—the striking flowers appearing all summer long until fall's first frost. With their unique coloration and easy-care nature, them make a fine choice for landscapes large or small. Butterflies love the bright dahlia blooms, but deer won't bother with them.
