The scoop on Dahlia Maarn / Sylvia

If you're familiar with orange flowering Maarn, Sylvia is her European name. Call her what you choose, she's prized by growers and market gardeners on both sides of the pond. A dependable beauty and prolific bloomer for her rich pumpkin shade and dramatic dark stems, great for summer mixing with yellows and mangoes. This dahlia bush is well shaped and productive, making it perfectly suited to both landscape and cutting purposes. Outstanding for fall bouquets too, stunning with russet shades, golds, coppers, honeys and gingers.
