Dahlia 'Bishop of Leicester' is another in the wonderful Gardening Diocese series of dark foliage dahlias. This particular "Bishop" makes a 2' tall x 18" wide clump of dark purple foliage topped, starting in late June, with light lavender (RHS 78C) flowers, often streaked with a lighter hue. The flowers, revered by hummingbirds, are highlighted by a contrasting center cone of orange with a dark center...praise Jeeesus.
