Description / Bishop's Children Dahlia Seeds

One of the most stunning dahlias you will ever see—let alone grow—Bishop's Children Dahlia is a warm-toned mix of solid and bicolor blooms in shades of red, orange, yellow, pink, and purple. The single and semidouble, peony-formed flowers include plenty of bicolors and two-toned blends, some gaily striped, others shading from one hue to the next like a tropical sunset, and still others a rich, deep solid color. But what makes this dahlia really extraordinary is its black foliage.

An informal, bushy plant, Bishop's Children Dahlia reaches 2½ to 3 feet tall and about a foot wide, with leaves so dark they appear black. The 3- to 4-inch blooms are held above the foliage, forming a colorful canopy atop the neat plant. Stunning in the garden and long-lasting in the vase, Bishop's Children Dahlia may become your favorite cut flower as well as a showstopper in the border and bed.

As its name suggests, Bishop's Children Dahlia is a descendant of that most famous of all dahlia, Bishop of Llandaff. Grown extensively in England (where it's one of the most popular plants of all time), Bishop of Llandaff is certainly magnificent, but we think that its "children" are even more impressive for modern gardens.

Easy to grow from seed, Bishop's Children Dahlia may be started indoors 4 to 6 weeks before last anticipated frost or sown directly into the garden where it will do best in a location with full sun and moist, fertile, well-drained soil. Although Bishop's Children Dahlia is a perennial, the tubers will need to be lifted in autumn, kept frost free in winter, and replanted in spring.

Review by ernaldo
All started in cellar under grow lights, warmed with pad until sprouted. Enured gradually a few weeks later (mid April) They are now incredibly beautiful..ALL plants not only survived, they are the stars of my gardens....

Nice intense colors against the dark foliage...
Review by OCDShopper
These intense blossoms of these plants offer a nice contrast to the dark foliage. I wish we were able to post pictures here. I have mostly intense reds and salmon colored ones. But, I lost quite a few seedlings to transplant shock. (I didn't acclimate them properly to the sun after germinating them indoors). The blossoms stand up tall over the foliage. My plants are about three feet tall now (in June) and I set them outside at the end of April. I'll probably get another packet next season and grow some out to give to my friends.

Vigous plants, easy to start from seed
Review by Diana
I planted my seedlings into the garden the first part of May. They started growing immediately and kept growing and growing and growing. THEY NEED TO BE STAKED! It is a lot easier to tie them to the stakes as they grow. It is quite difficult to corral 4 ft tall plants that are already bent over.The stems are sturdy but a little brittle, so you need to be careful when standing the bent plants upright.The blooms are beautiful, plentiful and nicely held above the nearly black glossy foliage. This makes them easy to deadhead and cut for indoor display. It is Oct 12 and they are still blooming as we have not had a frost yet. The only down side is that I got mostly red and orange flowers. I am going to start a few more next year to try to get some other colors.

Outstanding
Review by Marsha
This is such an incredible dahlia; the flower colors are intense and bright, the foliage is attractive (for a dahlia), and it is unbelievably easy to start from seed. I have dug the tubers in the fall and planted them the following year with great success. They may need to be staked in late summer, but are not as untidy as larger dahlias.
