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. If you’d like to be notified when it’s back in stock, sign up for an email alert.

FASHION MONGER, 1955Rarest

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.

FATIMA, 1961Web-Only

Bigger than a pompon but just as perfectly composed, this vivid, rose-pink dahlia almost seems to glow with an inner light. Its many flowers are held on strong, dark stems and make a dazzling display in garden or vase. The year it was introduced, Pope John Paul II visited the Portuguese village of Fatima where in 1917 the Virgin Mary had miraculously appeared to three shepherd girls. Ball/formal dec, 2-2½”, 4’, from Oregon. Chart and care. We plan to offer this variety again next spring. If you’d like to be notified when it’s back in stock, sign up for an email alert.

GOLDEN HEART, 1955Rarest

This sunburst of beauty is a warm red-orange brightened by what seem to be rays of golden light streaming from its center. It’s dazzling anytime but we like it best as it carries the torch of summer deep into the cool, waning days of fall. Aka ‘Mary Poppins’, semi-cactus, 6-10”, 4-5’, from New Hampshire. Chart and care.

JANE COWL, 1928Rarest & Web-Only

More than any other lost dahlia, people kept asking us for ‘Jane Cowl’ – and when we finally tracked it down, we understood why. It’s a big, gorgeous dahlia, with undulating petals of buff, bronze, and gold, like the tresses of a goddess – or actress Jane Cowl (1883-1950), who was once “the most beautiful woman on the American stage.” It’s expensive, yes, but worth every penny! 6-10”, 5-6’, from New Hampshire. Chart, care, and learn more. If you’d like to be notified when it’s back in stock, sign up for an email alert.

SD-27 1/$18.50 3/$52.50 5/$83 10/$157 25/$370 SOLD OUT

JERSEY’S BEAUTY, 1923Rarest & Web-Only

Once the world’s most popular dahlia – the one even non-gardeners knew by name – this glorious, true pink, New Jersey native is still amazing. Tall and vigorous, it will give you more of its sublimely simple flowers in late summer and fall than you can find a vase for. We’re proud to have re-introduced it to American gardens, and we urge you to give it a chance to show you why it was once such a big deal. Learn more. 4-6”, 6-7’, formal decorative, from New Hampshire. Chart, care, and learn more. If you’d like to be notified when it’s back in stock, sign up for an email alert.

KIDD’S CLIMAX, 1940Web-Only

Big, beautiful ‘Kidd’s Climax’ is one of the 20th century’s Top 10 dahlias. It offers colossal blooms of an ineffable, sunrise blend of pink, lavender, and creamy yellow that looks so luscious we bet you’ll want to take a bite. Easy to grow, free-flowering, and sturdy, it’s still winning tons of blue ribbons today at dahlia shows and county fairs across the country. 8-10”, 3-4’, heat-tolerant, from Oregon. Chart and care. We plan to offer this variety again spring 2021. If you’d like to be notified when it’s back in stock, sign up for an email alert.

SD-17 1/$12.50 3/$35.50 5/$56 10/$106 SOLD OUT

NATAL, 1959Rarest

Too big to be called a pompon, the 3” flowers of this old-fashioned ball dahlia are a deep, dark, velvety red. You’ll get lots and lots of them, too, with long, strong, bouquet-friendly stems. In Portuguese Natal means Christmas, and it’s the name Vasco da Gama gave to a region in South Africa when he first landed there on Christmas Day in 1497. Ball, 2½-3”, 3-4’, from Holland. Chart and care. We plan to offer this variety again next spring. If you’d like to be notified when it’s back in stock, sign up for an email alert.

SD-93 1/$7.50 3/$21.50 5/$34 10/$63.50 25/$150 SOLD OUT

PRINCE NOIR, 1954Rarest

Tall, dark, and handsome, this ‘Black Prince’ offers up armful after armful of ruffled, semi-cactus blooms of deep, dark burgundy that are just the right size for bouquets. (Try it with ‘Andries Orange’, if you dare.) We grow lots of great dahlias here, but this one seems to be on everybody’s list of favorites. Reintroduced by us in 2004 from the UK National Collection. 4-5”, 5-6’, heat-tolerant, now grown for us in New Hampshire. Chart, care, and learn more.

PRINCESSE LOUISE DE SUEDE, 1947Rarest & Web-Only

It’s back! Chic, sophisticated ‘Princess Louise of Sweden’ offers 4-inch flowers of a tantalizing color that’s hard to describe: maybe frosted coral? It’s not orange, not pink, not rose, but if you blended all three together and added a bit of mist, you’d be close. For added elegance, its petal tips seem dipped in silver, more on some flowers, less on others. Very cool! 4 inches, 4 feet, from New Hampshire. Chart and care.

SD-38 1/$12 3/$34 5/$54 10/$102 25/$240 SOLD OUT
