The scoop on Dahlia Gerrie Hoek

A classic that's been prized since the early 1940s, Gerrie Hoek is an elegant example of the dahlia waterlily form. Soft, but not washed out, shell pink blends with very light yellow to create a lovely "bridge" flower capable of tying warm and cool shades in the same bouquet. If you need an example of why "new" isn't always better, plant this stylish heirloom.

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, grown for generations and is highly recommended for cut flower use
