About Apricot Desire - Dahlia Bulbs (Waterlily)


Seed Type Tuber
Plant Type Waterlily

Deep green leaves and nearly black stems create the background for Apricot Desire Dahlia blooms to shine. The petals seem to float above the foliage in a dreamy dance. Originally from Mexico, Apricot Desire features a double blossom and is a member of the waterlily dahlias. You'll notice broad blooms that aren't as deep as other dahlias—truly unique!
