This is a plant that would be welcome in many gardens for the plum purple foliage alone, but add masses of carmine red blossoms and you've got a combo too good to pass up. No matter how full your garden, we recommend finding space for at least a trio of Roxy dahlias. Loved by honey bees.
Plant tubers 3-4" deep
Once sprouted, these plants need about 1" of rain/irrigation per week.
