Featured in the BEAUTIFUL NORTH OF ENGLAND Group for the week commencing 5th February 2014 and in BLOOMS on 24 October 2014.
Captured with my Canon PowerShot S3 IS camera in macro mode, two deep red dahlias growing in our garden in the North-East of England a few summers ago. This variety does really well in shady environments. They are either “Dark Spirit” or “Nuit d’Ete”. I ordered both varieties by post, but they came in a box minus labels, so I never knew which was which!
