This dahlia was shared with us by NC plantsman and designer Doug Ruhren, who selected it from a box-store offering of assorted seedling perennials. Dahlia 'Terracotta' makes a compact 2' tall x 3' wide mound of purple foliage, topped from early summer through fall with 3-4" wide flowers of golden orange (RHS 23B), suffused with a wide, darker-orange streak down the center of each petal. This has become a real favorite here at the gardens.
