Dahlia ‘Bishop Of York’
at Digging Dog
Cultivated by the Aztecs before Cortez’s arrival, introduced
to Europe in 1784 and named after Andreas
Dahl, a student of Carl Linnaeus, these Mexican and
Central American natives have a fascinating past.

new Dutch introductions stem from the widely
popular “Bishop” series, which originated in the 1920s.
Long blooming and fantastic as cut flowers, Dahlias
favor moist well-drained bright abodes and require
deadheading, regular feeding and frost protection. If the
tubers are grown in a garden bed, they should be lifted
and dried before the first hard freeze, stored throughout
the winter and planted outside after frosty nights have
subsided, or remain in sheltered containers until warmer
Dahlia ‘Bishop Of York’
Flaunting the same sensuous purplish black-flushed
foliage as our other “Bishop” series selection, this vigorous
Dahlia’s upright and compact leafy clump becomes
a rich dark backdrop for perfectly round bright yellow
flowers infused with a touch of orange. A one-man show,
‘Bishop of York’s dynamic contrasting colors inject compelling
accents to a container, cottage garden or a more
