The scoop on Dahlia Franz Kafka

Bigger isn't always better. Case in point: Franz Kafka dahlias. These pretty pompon flowers are on the small side - about 2-2.5" across - and that's fine. They'll win your heart with their perfect symmetry and happy color. We're not sure of the connection between this cultivar's name and that of the Czech writer, Franz Kafka, but how could it hurt to have a literary genius as a namesake?

Why Grow Medium Garden Dahlias?

  • Few flowers offer the color and form diversity of dahlias
  • Grow medium garden dahlias for sumptuous color and lavish cut flowers.
  • Extend vase life by cutting early in the day, after dew has evaporated
