Purple Anyone?

reddscarlette(3a BC Can)September 8, 2005

I'm just wondering. Are there any dahlias that are deep purple in colour? I've been searching, but the colours that come up are lavender to a bright purple. Is there any that are a deep purple? (or do they rank right up there with blue?....meaning no such thing?)

Sincerely Looking

Nikki~

Rothsay Reveler and Edinburgh are two dark purples (with white edging) that I know. Bet there are plenty more out there. Here'e Edinburgh and I can't find a photo of Rothsay, but I have one.
I think if you search the dahlia list for PR denoting purple vs lavender, you will find more to look at.

Jennifer's Wedding is a dark violet purple:

Willow's Purple Cactus without a name

Camano Thunder is bright purple- wish I had one. Much more purple than this photo.

Impression Fantastico, small collarette in deep purple and white

Oh Wow! Simply gorgeous! Now I just have to go hunting for Canadian dealers that I can get them from! lol

I would like to plant them with my Kelvin next year, so I'm searching ahead of seasons :D

Who'd a thunk Dahlias could be sooo much fun! And all the things you can do with them!

Here's another new one, a little pompon under 2 inches, more like one- great exclamation point in a bouquet in dark purple:
Wendy's Place

Nikki if you like yellows and purples together- my personal favorite BTW- you should look into Polventon Supreme and Ivory Palaces- just lovely, and don't forget Nettie for that little zing of small yellow

Polventon Supreme:

Ivory Palaces, so fluffy and wonderful

I lied. Oh yes, bold faced lie. The above purple and white was Rothsay Reveler. Edinburgh has more white on tips. Here they are side by side.
