Description / Dahlia Black Touch Fimbriata (Decorative x Semi Cactus) Dahlia Bulb

Welcome the enchanting Dahlia Black Touch Fimbriata into your garden, a true spectacle that graces the landscape with its stunning 6-inch fully double flowers boasting split and twisted petals. This fimbriata dahlia is a showstopper, emerging in early spring after the frost has passed and continuing its breathtaking display until late fall, typically enduring the first frost.

The journey of this black dahlia flower is a visual delight ? they unfold in a deep crimson-black hue and mature into a captivating two-toned coloration. The center petals maintain their crimson-black allure, while the surrounding petals gracefully transition to a killer red shade. The color evolution is a dynamic showcase that adds a unique dimension to your garden.

Borne on robust, sturdy stems, the flowers of Black Touch Fimbriata stand tall and proud, even in the face of rain. Their nectar- and pollen-rich allure is a beacon for bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds, creating a lively garden haven for months on end. Beyond their ornamental appeal, the long-lasting blooms of this black dahlia flower become exceptional additions to late-season bouquets and floral arrangements, making each cut a promise for more blooms to follow.

Black Touch is a Dahlia hybrid, a harmonious blend of Decorative and Semi Cactus varieties, commonly known as a fimbriata dahlia. This clump-forming perennial exhibits an upright habit, rarely demanding staking. Its versatility shines, making it equally splendid as a container plant, a garden centerpiece, or when massed or grouped for maximum impact.

For optimal growth, choose sunny to partly shady locations with fertile, humus-rich, well-draining soil. Black Touch tolerates a range of soil types, including clay, loam, and sandy soils, thriving in neutral, acidic, or alkaline pH levels. Throughout the growing season, maintain consistent soil moisture, avoiding dry spells. Encourage a bushy plant by pinching out growing tips, and witness the continuous burst of colorful blooms through regular deadheading.

While Dahlia Black Touch Fimbriata enhances your garden's visual appeal, it's essential to note that it's not considered pet-friendly. However, the vibrant crimson-black and killer red blooms, combined with its resilience and versatility, make it a bold and captivating choice for garden enthusiasts. Whether as a striking specimen or a massed display, Black Touch Fimbriata transforms your garden into a dynamic canvas of natural beauty. Explore the allure of this black dahlia flower and embrace the captivating journey it brings to your outdoor space.

Dahlias come in a wide variety of sizes, shapes, and colors. Dahlias are grown from tubers, which are similar to bulbs, so they're easy to plant. Follow our expert's advice on how to plant and care for dahlias in our Dahlia Care Guide. To learn more about dahlias, read our blog All About Dahlias.

NOTE: In Zones 3-7, the bulbs will need to be lifted before the first frost and overwintered inside. However, dahlias can be grown as annuals in all Zones.
