The scoop on Dahlia Sylvia

If you're familiar with orange flowering Maarn, Sylvia is her European equivalent, prized by growers and market gardeners across the pond. Sylvia blooms in the same rich pumpkin shade, great for summer mixing with yellows and mangos, and with dramatic dark stems. This dahlia plant is full and incredibly productive, so very well suited to both landscape and cutting purposes. Outstanding color and texture for late summer and fall bouquets with russet shades, golds, yellows and creams.

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
