Cafe au Lait, the most popular dahlia in America, has a cousin, Rose. This expressive dahlia is similar in both size and form to the lovely Cafe au Lait but the color leans more to rose pink. A new variety and an exciting one that we loved in the trial gardens for it's full, graceful form and not-too-large-for-bouquets flower size.
Note: Cafe au Lait blooms in a range of shades; ivory, light pink, mocha and more. This new sibling, Cafe au Lait Rose varies much less.
