Why we love this flower:

  • Uses: Cut Flower, dried arrangements

The Dark Red Shades of this Dara maintains its deep colors with reduced fading. The plants will present burgundy-red to dark pink flowers throughout the blooming season. With its lacy umbels sitting atop strong, sturdy, upright stems, Dara is a floral designer's favorite filler. Highly productive with 7–15 stems per plant. Long-lasting in bouquets. The Dara Dark Reds has a pleasantly aromatic fragrance.

Dara is considered invasive in some states and we cannot ship to HI, IA, MI, OH, WA.
