Plant Information

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.

Q & A

Plant With These:

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
