About Dahlia Bulbs (Decorative) - David Howard


Seed Type Tuber
Plant Type Decorative

A classic border dahlia, position David Howard Dahlias in your cutting garden so you can access these beautiful blooms to cut and bring inside. The contrast between the glossy, deep chocolate colored leaves and the apricot-orange petals is nothing less than striking. As a decorative variety, David Howard blooms measure up to four inches across with rounded, overlapping petals. Growing just three to four feet tall, David Howard Dahlias pair beautifully with Verbena hybrida or lavender Lavandula angustifolia.
