The scoop on Dahlia Night Butterfly

Shaped like a child's simple drawing of a flower, but with the texture of striated suede and color like a fine Merlot, Night Butterfly is our choice to represent collarette dahlias. This form has a single layer of flat petals with a second tuft of shorter wavy rays, a little floral collar, encircling the center. Night Butterfly sometimes grows shorter, about 24" in year one, but in subsequent years matures to 30-36" and produces an unbelievable number of flowers. This argues for planting in a container and overwintering in a non-freezing garage, to be enjoyed next season, too.

Why Grow Medium Garden Dahlias?

  • Few flowers offer the color and form diversity of dahlias
  • Fool your friends; they'll never believe that this is a dahlia
  • Night Butterfly has long flower stems, perfect for cutting
