The scoop on Dahlia Apricot Desire

Warm apricot petals with yellow accents and the subtlest pencil stripes encourage one to slow down and appreciate the beauty of this dahlia. It's like having the shades of dawn blooming by your back gate. Long, purple stems inspire snipping (feel free, the plant will make more) and the 4-5" flowers are well sized for vase sharing with other mid to large blossoms.

Why Grow Medium Garden Dahlias?

  • Few flowers offer the color and form diversity of dahlias
  • This dahlia is an excellent cut flower, producing armloads of blooms
  • Extend vase life by cutting early in the day, after dew has evaporated
