‘Black Narcissus’ Cactus Dahlia has great style and substance with burgundy-red flowers that explode like fireworks in the garden, blooming from mid-summer to frost. Standing tall at 4-5 feet, plant ‘Black Narcissus’ in the back of a perennial bed, in a cutting garden, or along a patio where its plentiful flowers can be appreciated. Fantastic cut flowers too, they make lovely bouquets.

Dahlias are perennial in zones 8-10, but in cooler zones, tubers can be dug after frost comes, stored over winter, then re-planted the following spring. Grow Dahlias in a sunny spot, in average soil that drains well. Keep moisture consistent once it begins to grow and enjoy a non-stop color parade. Deadhead spent blooms to encourage more flowers and pinch off small side buds to encourage larger flowers if desired.
