LAVENDER CHIFFON, 1957Rarest

Cool, man, cool! From the year that brought us Old Yeller, “Wake Up Little Susie,” and the coolest Chevy ever comes this enduring New Zealand classic. With its rippling, snow-white petals blushed with rosy lavender, it may remind you of sea anemones on a coral reef – or senior prom? 4-6”, 4-6’, semi-cactus, 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.

LITTLE ROBERT, 1964Rarest & Web-Only

With wiry stems and flowers not much bigger than a pompon dahlia’s, this bright little formal decorative seems custom-made for bouquets, but it’s a joy in the garden, too. Its white petals are brush-stroked at the tips with deep vivid rose, giving it an almost neon-like glow. Formal dec, 2-3”, 2½-4’, from Holland. Chart and care.

MISS ROSE FLETCHER, 1948

This angelically soft pink sunburst would be perfect for a frothy Sweet-16 party, a summer wedding, a pastel cottage garden, or (best of all) a simple vase on your desk or kitchen counter from August till frost. Australian-bred, it was introduced to great acclaim shortly after WWII, a peaceful beauty for a new age. 4-6”, 4’, from Oregon. Chart and care. We plan to offer this variety again next spring.

MRS. I. DE VER WARNER, 1920Rarest & Web-Only

On sale now! Preserved by a Kentucky farm family since the 1930s, this remarkable dahlia is hardy enough to survive most winters in the ground in mid-zone 6 and then bloom weeks before any other. A tall, lavender rose beauty, it came to us from 80-something Joyce Dowell who inherited it decades ago from her dahlia-loving grandmother, Fannie Williams. You can read their whole wonderful story here. Then plant this rare relic and when it blooms, remember Joyce and Fannie. 5-6”, 5-6’, from Oregon. Chart, care, and learn more.

MUSETTE, 1954

On sale now! Just two feet tall, this happy little harlequin will bring a pop of color to the front of your garden or a favorite container. Its non-stop, cherry-red flowers are tipped with white (sometimes more so, sometimes less) and it’s named for a spirited, jazz-inflected dance style that was wildly popular in France in the 1950s. Formal decorative, 2-3”, 1½-2½’, from Holland. Chart and care.

NATAL, 1959Rarest & New

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.

NEW BABY, 1964New

On sale now! The celebrated British gardener Sarah Raven describes this lively little ball dahlia as “a long-standing favorite” that “opens tangerine” before gradually “deepening to vermillion.” Although its yellow button eye may keep it off the show bench, in the garden it only adds to its baby-like charm. Ball, 2-3”, 3-4’, from Holland. Chart and care.

NITA, 1959Rarest & It’s Back!

On sale now! This speckled beauty is a variegated form of ‘Juanita’, one of the 20th century’s most popular dahlias. It’s just as strong growing and floriferous as ‘Juanita’, but its flowers are a lively lavender-pink delicately streaked and stippled with burgundy. Discovered by a backyard dahlia grower in tiny Brighton, Illinois, it went on to become a record-setting award-winner. Cactus, 6”, 4-5’, heat-tolerant. Chart and care.

NONETTE, 1958

On sale now! In his celebrated poem “Pied Beauty,” Gerard Manley Hopkins praises all things dappled, stippled, brindled, and freckled – so you know he would have loved ‘Nonette’. Set against dark green leaves, its apricot petals are intricately speckled and streaked with burgundy for a look that’s as natural as a finch’s egg yet totally sumptuous. Wow! Waterlily, 4-6” 4-5’, from Holland. Chart, care, and learn more.
