Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
DAHLIA 'Velvet'( MYSTIC WONDER, MYSTIC SERIES) PPAF
Dahlia, Decorative Dahlia, Mystic Wonder Dahlia
The dahlia hybrid 'Mystic Wonder' bears glossy beet-red foliage and dark red blooms on sturdy compact plants that do not need staking. It is one of the Mystic Series dahlias developed by renowned plant breeder Keith Hammett of Auckland, New Zealand.
Dahlias are tender herbaceous perennials that grow from plump underground tubers to form lush clumps of compound foliage topped with daisy-like blossoms. The single, eight-petaled, blood-red blossoms of 'Mystic Wonder' have a contrasting reddish-brown eye. The strong, dense, well-branched plants stand up to rain and wind.
Few tender perennials beat dahlias as everblooming warm-season bedding plants and cut flowers. They grow best in well-drained, fertile soil and full to partial sun. Remove spent flowers to promote continuous bloom. In cold-winter regions, plant tubers after the last frost date, and lift them in fall for storage in a cool dry location. Cultivars in the Mystic Series are propagated by division and are sold as tubers.
