There's something to be said for classics and if you doubt that, allow us to introduce Mick's Peppermint. This semi-cactus form dahlia was first grown in American gardens in 1992 and has graced them now for more than 25 years. We grew it in our test plot recently and found ourselves snipping blooms regularly for bouquets for friends and neighbors. Flowers are white with random splashes of wine, plum and fuschia. Looks great in arrangements with dahlias Jocondo, Thomas Edison and Chat Noir.
