‘Prince Noir’, 1954

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.

ANDRIES’ ORANGE, 1936Rarest

A clear, companionable orange with 3-4 inch, semi-cactus flowers on wiry stems, it’s a flower arranger’s delight. Its full Flemish name, ‘Andries Oranje As’, honors a Jazz Age liqueur from the small Belgian town of As. 3-5’, reintroduced from the UK National Collection and grown for us now in New Hampshire.

Hampley’, formal decorative, 6-10”, 4-5’, from Holland. Chart and care. We hope to offer this variety again next spring.
