Notes:
The classic 'Bishop of Llandaff' is the dahlia that started the current interest in burgundy-leaved dahlias. 'Llandaff' has rich red, peony-type flowers that are four inches across. They are held on black stems to about three feet with more finely dissected foliage than the other Bishops. Three options for winter starting with easiest and safest: 1. grow in a pot and move to a frost-free area, 2. lift tubers and store, 3. leave in the ground in well-drained, sunny beds under a mound of fallen leaves.
