DAHLIA COCCINEA PALMERI
A superb form of this lovely carmine flowered dahlia species which bears deepest mahogany, almost black leaves. This plant is almost indistinguishable from the dark-leaved and highly prized Dahlia 'Bishop of Llandaff', which can only be propagated from cuttings. Very few good seeds collected.
Seeds may be sown at any time of the year onto a well-drained compost and covered about 5-10 mm deeply. Keep the pot moist at a temperature of between 18 and 22 degrees C in a well-lit position. Seeds should germinate within 2 to 6 weeks but may take much longer so do not discard the seed tray. Pot on small seedlings into 3" or 7cm pots until of a size suitable for final planting out, preferably in a sheltered well-drained spot.
