Dahlia - Dinnerplate - Black Wizard
The Dinner Plate Dahlia Black Wizard, 'Dahlia Black Wizard', will cast his spell on you with a single glance. 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.
Marvel at the size of the 'Dinner Plate Dahlias'. They are truly the size of a dinner plate and they are spectacular. A single stem will make a statement and you will want to share these fall beauties with friends. Pinching will produce even larger flowers.
