‘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.

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.

CAFÉ 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.

DEUIL DU ROI ALBERT, 1936Web-Only

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, care, and learn more.

DIXIE’S WINEDOT, 1942Rarest

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.

G.F. HEMERIK, 1936Rarest

The bee-friendly, button-eyed flowers of this sweet little dwarf are a gentle shade of orange with undertones of copper and rose.

Single, 2-3”, 1-2’, from Holland. Chart and care.
