THE classic deep purple, Thomas Edison has been grown in America for more than 70 years. Most of the photos here were taken at the Denver Botanic Gardens where's it's still a featured performer - that says something about quality. Outstanding mixed with pastels for vibrant contrast. As a bonus, Thomas Edison performs well in the South, where many dahlias struggle.
