Mystic Enchantment Dahlia

Dahlia x Mystic Enchantment 

Captured in the BCC greenhouses in Supply, NC on March 5, 2016. While Dahlias are beloved flowers for many, they are not known for their ability to withstand heat and humidity.  The new-ish Mystic series of Dahlia were bred by a leading New Zealand plant breeder to display vivid colored blooms as well as heat tolerance.  Yes, even the heat and humidity of southeastern NC!  This brilliant red bloom is set against a backdrop of dark mahogany leaves with plenty of pollinator power.  While slightly cold tender, they are hardy here most winters and are plenty worth it.
