Dahlia Arabian Night

Arabian Night Dahlia are one of the best-known red-black flowers on the market and they don't disappoint when it comes to drama! The plants carry masses of double, deep blood-red flowers with slightly incurved petals, measuring up to 10-15 cm in diameter. Under a certain light, the velvety petals take on an almost black hue. If it's dark and mysterious you're after, go for Arabian Night! But if you're looking for something at the other end of the colour spectrum to make a great contrast, do have a look at our full range. Arabian Night goes with most of them!

Like all dahlias, Arabian Night will add a bold splash of deep, rich colour to your garden during late summer and early autumn, when most other plants are past their best.

Great In Your Garden...

One of the darkest of the dahlias, Arabian Night is a favourite with flower arrangers and it's easy to see why. There are so many pale blooms to work with but so few deep colours! The almost-black, velvety petals add drama to arrangements and bouquets. From a technical point of view, the study stems make them easy to work with.

It's one of the taller dahlias at 1.2m, so is ideal for the middle of a sunny mixed border. An ideal companion for red and purple flowers and foliage plants, giving reliable colour right through until the first frosts.

Arabian Night will also perform well in a large pot, as long as it is well staked, fed and watered and is in a sheltered location.

Exhibitors love its dramatic good looks and reliability - to get bigger show flowers, nip out excess side buds to concentrate the plant's energy.
