Dahlia ‘Mystic Fantasy Hawaiian Dreams’
This Dahlia pinnata (syn. O. variabilis) boasts unique sun kissed flamingo-pink blooms with a soft yellow halo, raspberry eye and dark disc from early summer to fall, and its foliage is a glossy mahogany-black. At 31 inches by 24 inches, the dahlia’s compact habit makes it ideal for containers, borders and mass landscape plantings. This half-hardy cultivar thrives in USDA Zones 9 to 11 with full sun in rich, well-drained soil.
