From the Happy Single series, Dahlia 'First Love' has apricot, yellow, and red single flowers over burgundy foliage.
Inspired by the doomed lovers Romeo and Juliet, this series is ironically and strangely called the Happy Single Series. At least our love affair with burgundy-leaved dahlias will continue. Collect the whole series for a Shakespearean extravaganza! 'First Love' has single, apricot flowers with a yellow flush and a thin red accent around the centre of the dark-brown heart. The foliage is burgundy. Long-blooming from June to fall. Dahlia are hardy to coastal BC's winter temperatures but not to winter wet. Protect from rain in free-draining soils, plant in pots that can be moved and protected, or lift and store in a cool, dry, frost free location. They are moderately deer resistant.
