Dahlia ‘Karma Chocolate’
Dahlia ‘Karma Chocolate’ is a decorative dahlia but with more of a Waterlily shape, like an extra fluffy waterlily dahlia!
Dahlia ‘Karma Chocolate’ really lives up to it’s name with rich velvety dark petals. Specially bread as a cut flower, it is a dream to arrange with and perfect for tucking into bouquets.
Dahlia ‘Karma Chocolate’ is a must for every garden and a good choice for smaller gardens.
We knew we would never have enough tubers to split for everyone that wanted one, so I have asked our supplier to provide me with a some extra tubers on my order so that I can share them with you.

Cutting /Vase Life:
Dahlias do not continue to open once cut so pick when blooms are ¾ of the way open. Check the back of the flower head to check all the petals are perfect. The petals turn papery, drop and lose colour once they start to go over. Deadhead flowers to give plants back the energy to ripen the next flower rather than work on producing seed.
Place flowers straight into ready buckets of water, we rest our blooms for a few hours in water, this is called conditioning.
