WHY DAHLIAS? They get better and better in late summer and autumn when many plants are fading. They come in lush colors and astonishing forms. And the more you cut them for bouquets, the more they bloom.

DAHLIA HISTORY — Dahlias were brought into gardens by the Aztecs, and first bloomed in Europe in 1789. For more, click here.

TIPS — Dahlias prefer full sun and summers that aren’t too hot. No, you don’t HAVE to dig and store them. To learn more, click here.

BISHOP OF LLANDAFF, 1927        
Dark-leaved dahlias are hot these days, thanks to this inspiring original. With cut-leaf, burgundy-bronze foliage and glowing scarlet, almost-single flowers sparked by a ring of vivid yellow stamens, ‘Bishop’ has starred at Wave Hill, Heronswood, the Denver Botanic Garden – and here. How can you garden another summer without growing it yourself? 3”, 4-5’, heat-tolerant, from Holland. Chart, care, and learn more.

BONNE ESPERANCE, 1948        Web-Only
Here’s a sweet little classic for pots or the front of a sunny border. Just 12-24 inches tall, ‘Good Hope’ is loaded all summer with 2-3 inch, rosy pink flowers, each a single row of petals around a cheerful yellow button-eye. Nothing could be simpler, or prettier – and the bees will thank you for it, too! From Oregon. Chart and care.
Limit 5, please.
CAFE AU LAIT, 1967        
It’s not just for brides! Although its exquisite coloring – “creamy pink, blush, peach, ivory, champagne, and dusty rose,” in the words of brides.com – has made it enormously popular for weddings, this sumptuous flower will look just as good in your garden or a Mason jar on the kitchen counter. You’ll get lots of big, ruffled blooms with long, strong stems on a sturdy plant that blooms and blooms. 6-10”, 4’, from Holland. Chart, care, and learn more.
DAVID HOWARD, 1960        
This dark-leaved, not-so-tall dahlia was a favorite of the great Christopher Lloyd who wrote that it “deserves every scrap of the praise lavished on it. Above bronze foliage, it carries a prodigal, non-stop succession” of apricot-orange flowers that “show up brightly from afar.” Lloyd paired it with lavender Verbena bonariensis and ornamental grasses for a combination that would look stunning in your garden, too. Formal decorative, 3-4”, 3-4’, from Holland. Chart, care, and learn more.
SD-78 1/$6.50 3/$18 5/$28 SOLD OUT
DEUIL DU ROI ALBERT, 1936        
Still a popular favorite in Europe (and with us), “Dwee doo” is easy to grow and loaded with 4-6 inch flowers of royal purple tipped with white – sometimes more so, sometimes less – for an effect that’s surprisingly elegant. Albert, the beloved “people’s king” of Belgium, died in 1934, hence its decidedly antique name: “Mourning for King Albert.” Re-introduced by us in 2002 from the UK National Collection. 4-6”, 4-5’, heat-tolerant, from Oregon. Chart and care.

DIXIE’S WINEDOT, 1942        Rarest
Much more than just a pretty face, this infinitely varied dahlia is helping researchers at the Stanford University Dahlia Project explore the mysteries of genetics. But trust us, you don’t have to be a scientist to enjoy its big, primrose to cream flowers delicately sprinkled with wine. They’re gorgeous! Michigan-bred by Dixie Dahlia Gardens of Clio, 6-10”, 5-6’, grown for us now at Sun Moon Farm in New Hampshire. Chart and care.
FASHION MONGER, 1955        Rarest
On sale now! One of Garden Gate’s “Best New Plants” for 2017! With its creamy, raspberry-brushed petals, its feathery ruff, and a golden eye, this mid-century collarette dahlia is striking enough to look right at home on the runway. It’s a prolific bloomer, too, and always draws an adoring entourage in the garden – of people and bees. 2-3½”, 3-4’, from Holland. Chart, care, and learn more.
