The scoop on Dahlia Islander

Even for those not usually taken with huge pink flowers and over the top curls and ruffles, Islander wins fans. The blooms are a frothy blend of saturated flamingo hues and textures that makes it almost impossible to resist touching. Blooms are giant, 8-10" across, and carried on strong, purple stems.

For "dinnerplates", we use the American Dahlia Society's "Giant or AA" and "Large or A" classifications which are 10+" and 8-10" respectively.

Why Grow Dinnerplate Dahlias?

  • Few flowers offer the color and form diversity of dahlias
  • Dinnerplate dahlias are garden showgirls; flashy, sensational and thrilling.
  • Pinch young plants to produce the biggest blooms; see Dahlia Planting Guide for tips
