There are not many flowering plants that can boast foliage that nearly rivals the blooms in color and beauty, but Karma Choc is definitely one of them! This striking decorative-type dahlia is rich and velvety with deep red, fully double flowers that feature chocolate-brown centers for extra appeal. Bred in Holland for the cut-flower market, the 6" blooms are among the finest we've seen, and the lush, burgundy foliage is touched with an unusual teal-blue sheen—truly outstanding! With a moderate 40" height, Karma Choc goes from border to bed to bouquet easily, making it a versatile all-around choice for the landscape. For maximum impact, we suggest planting in groups so that visitors and passersby can get the full effect of the bushy habit and amazing blooms.
