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.

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. 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.

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. We plan to offer this variety again next spring.

FASCINATION, 1964

The dark foliage of this Award of Garden Merit-winning dahlia makes its brilliant, lilac-rose, semi-double blooms look even more beautiful. Dark eyes ringed by golden stamens add to its allure, and they definitely make the bees happy! Peony-flowered/semi-double, 4-5” across, 2½-3’, from Holland. Chart and care.

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. We hope 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.

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.

GERRIE HOEK, 1942

Is this really “the most popular dahlia of all time”? That’s what experts have called this shell-pink beauty, praising it as “a superb cut flower” with “splendid stems” that’s “easy to grow,” great in the garden, and “the ideal waterlily” dahlia. Who could ask for anything more? 3-4”, 3-4’, from Holland. Chart and care. We plan to offer this variety again next spring.

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. It’s just the right size for containers and small gardens, or try it at the front of your vegetables. Blooming non-stop, it looks especially good combined with purple flowers or bronze foliage. Single, 2-3”, 1-2’, 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.

GLORIE VAN HEEMSTEDE, 1947Rarest

There’s a Zen-like simplicity to waterlily dahlias. With fewer petals than most, they have a peaceful, uncluttered look, proving once again that less can be more. Winner of the Stredwick Medal, one of the dahlia world’s highest awards, ‘Glorie’ is a buttery yellow of classic form, early blooming, and loaded with flowers. Strong stems make it great for bouquets. 4-5”, 4-5’, from Holland and New Hampshire. Chart and care. We plan to offer this variety again next spring.

GLORIE VAN NOORDWIJK, 1969Web-Only & New

Just over the dunes from the Dutch bulb fields lie the beaches of Noordwijk, “Europe’s floral seaside resort.” This 1960s beauty is a worthy namesake, with its soft, warm shades of sand and sun and its frequently split petal tips which give it a relaxed, almost windblown look. Pronounced NORT-vike, formal decorative, 4-5”, 4’, from New Hampshire. Chart and care.
