The scoop on Dahlia Cafe' au Lait

Cafe' au Lait is America's favorite dahlia, relied on across the country by florists, wedding planners, farmer's market growers and homeowners. Why? Elegant creamy, blush pink, mocha to light purple shades, sweeping petals, shoulder high plants and generous bud and bloom counts. Don't let that suggest that this dahlia is any more challenging to grow than others. Remarkably easy. Grow you own . . . and savor an abundance of breathtaking blooms to enjoy from mid summer through frost.

Dahlia Cafe au' Lait was named the 2017 Fresh Flower of the year by the Association of Specialty Cut Flower Growers, based on National Cut Flower Trials, and recommendations from cut flower growers across the country. Quite an endorsement!
