One of my favourite dahlias in a wonderful burnished copper brown above dark stems and leaves. It is named after my friend Dicky Schipper, who spotted this in a trial field standing out from hundreds of others.
It is brilliant for a container or front of a border - hugely recommended.
All dahlia flowers are edible, scatter their petals on salads for flavour, texture and colour.
