AMBER QUEEN, 1945Web-Only & New

A warm, pastel amber touched with peach in the center, this WW II-era pompon was raised by Harry Stredwick, winner of the RHS’s Victoria Medal of Honor, whose family introduced their first dahlias way back in the 1890s. Great for bouquets, it blooms early and profusely. Pompon, 2”, 4’, from Oregon. Chart and care.

ARTHUR HAMBLEY, 1955Rarest & Web-Only

This big, beautiful dinner-plate dahlia has ruffled petals of soft lavender-pink with a glimmering of gold deep in the center. The great garden writer Henry Mitchell wrote that dinner-plates are like elephants, walruses, and hippos – each “marvelous in itself” – and this is a marvelous pink elephant indeed. Aka ‘A. Hampley’, formal decorative, 6-10”, 4-5’, from Holland. Chart and care.

BONNE ESPERANCE, 1948Web-Only

Here’s a sweet little classic for pots or the front of a sunny border. Just 12-24 inches tall, ‘Good Hope’ is loaded all summer with 2-3 inch, rosy pink flowers, each a single row of petals around a cheerful yellow button-eye. Nothing could be simpler, or prettier – and the bees will thank you for it, too! From Oregon. Chart and care.

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. With luck our grower may offer us more bulbs this season. If you’d like to be notified when it’s back in stock, sign up for an email alert.

FATIMA, 1961Web-Only & New

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.

GYPSY GIRL, 1947Rarest & Web-Only

The lavender-to-pink-to-white petals of this post-war beauty are decorated with a confetti of ruby speckles and flecks for a look that’s as festive as a birthday party. Bred by Albert Parrella, once known as the “Dahlia King of the Bronx,” formal decorative, 3-4”, 4-5’, grown for us at Sun Moon Farm in 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. With luck our grower may offer us more bulbs this season. If you’d like to be notified when it’s back in stock, sign up for an email alert.

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. With luck our grower may offer us more bulbs this season.

KAISER WILHELM, 1881Web-Only

As seen full-page in Horticulture! This rare souvenir from a lost age is the most antique-looking of all of our dahlias. With neatly curled petals of custard yellow brushed with burgundy, and a green button-eye like an old-fashioned rose, it’s a true Victorian “fancy” dahlia – and one of a mere handful of dahlias that survive from the 10,000 grown in the 19th century. We’re proud to have returned it to American gardens, and we hope you’ll help us preserve it! Learn more. 3”, 4-5’, from Oregon. Chart and care. Last offered spring 2018 and we hope to offer it again someday. If you’d like to be notified when it’s back in stock, sign up for an email alert.
