Bishop’s Children Dahlia


Single petaled blooms in red, pink, and yellow adorn burgundy foliage. 42in tall. Start early. All that’s left of the Bishop of Llandff’s palace in Wales is an iron gated arch entrance flanked by crumbling stone towers. But his gardens live on in the progeny of his dahlias. Though dahlias are most often grown from tubers, seed grown dahlias are more fun. Because dahlias are octoploids, meaning they have four times as many chromosomes as most other flowers, so the seeds produce a spectacular diversity of architectural leaves and blooms in a myriad of forms and colors. Part of the joy of planting the Bishop’s Children is that if you find one you love, you simply harvest & store the tubers to plant next year. Certified organic. Non-GMO, open pollinated seeds. Seed count: 50. Artwork by: Kellie Cox
