Classic Dahlia

A nice collection of dahlias with bronze foliage.
The flowers are of the
Peony-type.

Ideal to create wonderful contrasts
in your garden.

The butterflies and the bees are for free, they are fond
of these type of dahlias.

The name of this series is perhaps somewhat misleading. Although this is a type of dahlia that looks like the dahlias we know from descriptions and books of long ago, the collection itself is really brand-new. When breeding them, one of the main criteria was to develop dahlias with a nostalgic look, dark leaves and a perfect harmony between the deeply coloured centres of the flowers and the darker foliage of the plant. The series now consists of about six or seven refreshing, natural-looking colours with the intention of having them planted in a sunny spot in the border of the romantic garden against the foliage of such plants as conifers or grey-leafed annual or perennial plants.
