Cultivar Notes - 'Black Wizard'
This cactus type Dahlia has petals that are so dark red and purple that they appear to glimmer like black magic. Black Wizard's central petals are a dangerous purple that matures to black. The outer petals are slightly quilled and stained a dragon's-blood red. They are hardy in zones 8-10; elsewhere dig and store in a frost-free area.
Genus Notes - Dahlia
Fewer flowers say "summer" like the bold blooms of dahlias. These favorite plants come in two basic types: compact bedding forms and tall border types. Both have upright stems and grow from tuberous roots. They come in an amazing range of colors and flower forms, from single, small, daisy-like blooms to huge, ruffled flowers up to 8" across. Compact bedding dahlias are ideal for container gardens and for edging beds. Use the border types to add height and color to gardens in late summer to fall. Dahlias also make great cut flowers.
