Karma Yin Yang dahlia's tall, dark red, sturdy herbaceous stems are accented by red and white bicolored blossoms that are superb cutflowers. This tall, hybrid tender perennial with bulbous underground tubers produces nearly evergreen foliage, which is comprised of bronze-green or purple-green compound leaves with leaflets that are oval, pointed and have toothed margins. When the weather is warm it will produce double, formal decorative flowers that are a regal violet-red with white tips on the petals. It is advantageous to remove the old buds from spent flowers to encourage continued flowering.
Dahlias prefer well-drained, fertile soil and full to partial sun. The most beautiful flowers occur when nights are comfortably cool and days warm and sunny. Cultivars are often grown from divisions of tuberous roots and cuttings to preserve their unique characteristics, or grown from seed to create new, interesting colored or shaped flowerheads. All dahlias are cold sensitive and their tuberous roots should be lifted and overwintered in cool dry locations where winters are harsh. In hot, humid subtropical regions the dahlia is best grown in the late fall and winter with the start of the dry season.
