The bronzy-black foliage of Dahlia 'Bishop of Llandaff' makes a stunning feature in the border, even before it is topped with wow-red flowers (RHS color 45A) held above the foliage. For us, "The Bishop" flowers in late June and July and then takes a break from flowering until nights cool in early September, when it resumes attracting hummingbirds with its floral show. For trivia buffs, this dahlia was named for Bishop Hughes of Llandaff (now Cardiff), Wales, UK, in 1924 and won the prestigious Award of Merit from the RHS in 1928. In 2004, Dahlia 'Bishop of Llandaff' made the RHS list of the top plants of the last 200 years...quite an honor.
