The scoop on Dahlia L'Ancresse

It's hard to imagine a dahlia cutting graden without a high-producing, beautiful, deblendable white ball. Just include L'Ancresse and you're all set. Clean, crisp white blooms are perfectly formed and held high atop easy to use straight, strong stems. The obvious use is for weddings (perfect!), but L'Ancresse lends itself to so much more: Mix bouquets, alter flowers, pastel arrangements and high contrast mixes with deep purples and wines. L'Ancresse is a slender, upright dahlia perfect for tucking into already-full gardens.

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 and recommended for cut flower use
