‘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

Simple yet extraordinary, this charming dahlia became an instant staff favorite when it first bloomed here – and bloomed and bloomed and bloomed.

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.

As elegant and wildflowery as the great ‘Bishop of Llandaff’, this sublimely simple collarette dahlia is named for Debussy’s romantic ode to moonlight. With a single row of soft yellow outer petals, a frilly ruff of white inner petals, and an eye like a harvest moon, it’s strong-growing in the garden and blissful in bouquets. Fern-like green leaves, 3”, 3-4’, heat-tolerant, from New Hampshire. Chart and care. We plan to offer this variety again next spring.

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. We plan to offer this variety again next spring.
