The scoop on Dahlia Daisy Duke

Another of the gorgeous dahlias in a shade that would require searching the oversized 114 color Crayola box, Daisy Duke petals are a swirl of coral, salmon and warm pink, dotted in the center with mauve. The plant is an excellent height for even smaller gardens, maturing to just 3 feet and developing into a nicely formed bush. To encourage the longest possible smokey purple stems, pinch Daisy Duke hard.

Why Grow Cutting Dahlias?

  • Few flowers offer the color and form diversity of dahlias
  • Extend vase life by cutting early in the day, after dew has evaporated and when buds are three quarters open
  • The more flowers you cut, the more the plant produces
  • This variety has been trialed widely and recommended for cut flower use
  • Our trials produced flowers that weren't quite as tighly ball-formed as some others, but the stunning color combination is a must-have.
