Dahlia 'Bishop of Llandaff' (Bishop of Llandaff Dahlia)

SunZone: 7b-8, at least 50" tall Origin: Hybrid

We have wanted to offer this gem for years but never could quite propagate enough to meet the demand, which always outstrips the supply. The bronzy-black foliage 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 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, it made the RHS list of the top plants of the last 200 years...quite an honor. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml)
