The scoop on Dahlia Silver Years

This variety hit our radar thanks to a recommendation from a market grower we've come to trust for his field tested winners. As expected, it performed swimmingly in our own trials. Obviously, the graceful white waterlily blooms overlaid with whisper pink lend themselves to wedding work. Surprisingly, the colors also work beautifully with bold pinks, cranberries and purples. If we were growers, Silver Years would be on our short list. One of the first to bloom in our 2018 trials, tops for productivity and still flowering with the very last of them in the fall.

Why Grow Cutting Dahlias?

  • Few flowers offer the color and form diversity of dahlias
  • This variety has been trialed and recommended for cut flower use
  • 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 dahlia is a Leafari grown, tested and recommended variety. We love Silver Years and are finding spots for it in our hoome gardens!
