Introduced in the 1920s, this once-again-popular dahlia is the source of the genetics for the now famous Bishop series of dark leaf dahlia varieties. Bishop of Llandaff's appeal stems from the startling contrast between the semi-double vermilion-red blooms and cut-leaf eggplant-black foliage. Happily, it also needs no staking and performs well in the South. On the Royal Horticultural Society's 2004 Top Plants of the last 200 years, Bishop of Llandaff has also received the RHS Award of Garden Merit - quite an honor. This dahlia is an excellent choice for butterfly gardens.
