Dahlia Rip City

Dark and dramatic, Dahlia Rip City is one of the best dahlias you can grow and it is the flower that sparked the craze for near-black blooms. So if deep blood-reds are not for you take a look the rest our dahlias for sale. Rip City is a stunning semi-cactus dahlia with velvety deep wine red flowers, getting darker towards an almost black heart. The 10-15cm double flowers have long, narrow, pointed petals that recurve for more half their length and appear ruffled.

Bred in the US and introduced in 1994, Rip City is a strong grower, reaching 1.2m, with upright flowers held on long, strong stems above dark green foliage from mid-July until the first frosts.

Good In Your Garden...

You need a bold hand to use Rip City at its best - try planting it in the middle of a sunny border in groups of at least five for a massed effect, surrounded by white flowers or grey foliage. Try it in bold groups in a sunny, sheltered border.

It's also great to use as a cut flower, either on its own or with other intensely coloured dahlias for instant mpact. The more you cut, the more flowers form, as long as keep the tubers well fed and watered.
