Dahlia A Night of Colour is a dark (burgundy colour) leaved variety producing the most brightly coloured flowers imaginable. Whilst many of the flower are pure-coloured, amazingly bright shades of, pink, red, purple, orange, yellow and white, several bicolours are also included. Dahlia A Night of Colour produces spectacular summer colour which lasts throughout the warmer months and by late autumn produces tuberous bulbs in the soil. These bulbs don't have to be lifted, and generally during the following spring will shoot back and produce even more spectacular flowers. Dahlia Unwins Brightest is a species of Dahlia viriabilis.

I’m disappointed with the germination. I bought, ‘Unwins Brightest,’ at the same time, used the same soil mix, and got over 20 plants, but Night of Colour has only yielded about 5-10 plants.

Ordered these seeds and received within a week. Good germination rate and have just had my first flower - a lovely little velvet red :) Looking forward to planting more next season

My dahlia seeds arrived quickly, & had very clear planting instructions which I found very helpful. I planted quite a few & still have plenty left to use whenever I'm ready to plant more! Very pleased with my purchase!
P.s They haven't flowered yet, they are still babies!
