Several plants from this seed have won prizes on the show bench in USA, UK, Australia and New Zealand. This breeding produces sensational miniature decorative dahlias, very double and 3-4in across of a quality normally associated only with the most carefully selected of vegetatively propagated varieties. They have straight, strong stems and are remarkably floriferous in rich, bright colours including gold, crimson, purple, apricot and many shades of red and pink.
Culinary note: All dahlia flowers and tubers are edible. The flavours and textures can vary greatly depending on the soil and conditions in which they were grown. Flavours range from water chestnut through to a spicy apple or even carrot. For more details about edible flowers click here.
