Small Victoria Ann Dahlia Blossoms Feature Purple Beauty

 The Victoria Ann dahlia is classified as a small (BB) dahlia four to six inches in diameter. It is semi-cactus in form and it is listed as light in color, but the photos I took at The Dahlia Garden in Golden Gate Park were graced with a darker to lighter, blended purple. It was introduced in 2003 by N. Gittz. The ADS Classification Code is 3210. This perennial requires full sun. It is deer-resistent. You can grow it in a 3-gallon container on up or in the ground. These photos were taken in San Francisco.

White Licorice Rose A Vibrant Bloomer

The White Licorice rose can surprise you with its light yellow to white. In the photos I took, the yellow was a strong, vibrant yellow. 

This disease-resistant Floribunda was registered as Wekdidusinra and its trademarked name is White Licorice™.

Bred by Christian Bédard in the United States in 2009, White Licorice was introduced into the USA by Weeks Wholesale Rose Grower Inc. in 2011 as "White Licorice."

The other two roses are experimental roses that bear a resemblance to White Licorice.

Its strong lemon-licorice fragrance is a delight, as are the 26 to 40 pedals at full bloom (depending upon the plant's size that ranges from approximately 31 to 47 inches in height). The pointed, ovoid buds are great for cut flowers. White Licorice is also good in beds and borders. You will not be disappointed.
