Thanks to Bobby Ward for sharing this dahlia (T79-41) he collected on a 1998 Yucca Do Expedition to Hidalgo, Mexico. The vigorous, open habit of Dahlia coccinea makes this a great plant to interweave into the border. For us, the 3' tall x 6' wide mounds begin to flower in late summer with 2" brilliant orange-red flowers with bright yellow eyes. If you have enough room, this selection of Dahlia coccinea is a stunner!
