36" tall x 24" wide. 'Créme de Cassis' is an aptly-named dahlia. A syrupy, black currant-flavored liqueur, Créme de Cassis is both sweet and plum-colored, two traits it shares with its namesake dahlia. Performing best in full-sun conditions, dahlia 'Créme de Cassis' is deer resistant and untouched by insect pests. When using the blooms as cut flowers, harvest the buds when they're only half open to enjoy a maximum vase life of up to ten days. This variety also does well when grown in containers. Like other dahlias, 'Créme de Cassis' can be kept short and bushy by pinching out the growing points once or twice early in the growing season. Lift and store the tubers in a cool garage or basement for the winter.
