40" tall x 24" wide. Bred for the cut flower industry, 'Karma Choc®' is an award-winning dahlia with a slight fragrance and an exceptionally long vase life. Each deep burgundy bloom measures 4 to 6 inches across and is held atop a strong, straight stalk. For the best bloom production, pick a planting site in full sun with well-drained soil, and deadhead the plant regularly if you don't harvest the flowers for bouquets. Gardeners in colder climates can overwinter bare dahlia tubers in boxes of peat moss stored in a dry location between 40 and 50 degrees F. 'Karma Choc' is deer and pest resistant. To really enjoy the dark foliage of this variety, plant it in combination with chartreuse-leaved perennials and shrubs.
