Dahlia Trebbiano: 'Nearly Black'

butterflylion(7bGA)March 21, 2012

Does anyoe grow "Trebbiano?" How do you like it? How different is it? Also, I'm wondering if it's as dark when grown in the South?

"Black" dahlias need sun to set the dark pigment. They should do very well in the South. The blackest dahlias I have seen are Ebony Star and Verrone's Obsidian both as black as a black pot. A picture taken with flower in front of black pot showed little difference. One problem is that both of these dahlias have open centers. In fully double dahlias the blackest I ever saw was a miniature ball called "Pot Black". Fidalgo Blacky was nearly as dark. In larger flowers, the blacks are not nearly as black. I like to think that two of our introductions Hollyhill Black Widow and Hollyhill Black Beauty are about as black as any larger flower.
