Here you’ll find our VERY rarest bulbs along with late finds and others we simply couldn’t squeeze into our print catalog.

Those marked “Web-Only & Rarest” are sometimes in such short supply that they sell out within days — and some years we can’t offer them at all — so if you see one you like, we recommend you order it now!

BLOODSTONE, 1939        Rarest & Web-Only
Named for an ancient gemstone famed for its medicinal and magic powers (learn more), this knockout blooms more profusely than any dahlia we’ve ever grown, with small, elegant flowers of dark, luminous red set against deep green leaves. Photos can only hint at its excellence – prepare to be wowed! 3”, 4-6’, heat-tolerant, from Oregon. Chart & care.

JERSEY’S BEAUTY, 1923        Rarest & Web-Only
Once the world’s most popular dahlia – the one even non-gardeners knew by name – this glorious, true pink, New Jersey native is still amazing. Tall and vigorous, it will give you more of its sublimely simple flowers in late summer and fall than you can find a vase for. We’re proud to have re-introduced it to American gardens, and we urge you to give it a chance to show you why it was once such a big deal. 4-6”, 6-7’, formal decorative, from New Hampshire. Chart & care.

KIDD’S CLIMAX, 1940        Web-Only
Big, beautiful ‘Kidd’s Climax’ is one of the 20th century’s Top 10 dahlias. It offers colossal blooms of an ineffable, sunrise blend of pink, lavender, and creamy yellow that looks so luscious we bet you’ll want to take a bite. Easy to grow, free-flowering, and sturdy, it’s still winning tons of blue ribbons today at dahlia shows and county fairs across the country. 8-10”, 3-4’, heat-tolerant, from Oregon. Chart & care.

KLANKSTAD KERKRADE, 1954        Rarest & Web-Only
No matter how small your garden is, this compact dahlia with its bouquet-sized poofs of soft, primrose yellow will make you glad you planted it. We love its weird name, too. Klankstad means “Sound City” and Kerkrade is the Dutch town that in 1951 launched what has become the world’s greatest band festival. 3-4”, 3-5’, semi-cactus, from Holland. Chart & care.
SD-68 1/$8.50 3/$23.50 5/$36.50 10/$68 25/$153 SOLD OUT
MADAME STAPPERS, 1947        Rarest & Web-Only

Last chance! Our photos don’t show you the best thing about ‘Madame Simone Stappers’ — it grows as a dense, rounded, all but self-supporting mound about 2½ feet tall that looks more like a small shrub or a peony than a dahlia. With dark-chocolate foliage and radiant blooms, it’s stunning in perennial borders — or try one in a big beautiful pot. Chart & care.

Unfortunately this unique dahlia multiplies so slowly that we’ve reluctantly decided this is the LAST time we’ll be offering it. Get it while you can! 3”, 2½-3’, semi-double, grown exclusively for us in Holland.

SD-56 1/$10.50 3/$28.50 5/$45 SOLD OUT
PRINCESSE LOUISE DE SUEDE, 1947        Rarest & Web-Only

Last chance! Chic, sophisticated ‘Princess Louise of Sweden’ offers 4-inch flowers of a tantalizing color that’s hard to describe: maybe frosted coral? It’s not orange, not pink, not rose, but if you blended all three together and added a bit of mist, you’d be close. For added elegance, its petal tips seem dipped in silver, more on some flowers, less on others. Very cool! 4 inches, 4 feet, from Holland.

TOMMY KEITH, 1892        Rarest & Web-Only
This 124-year-old granddaddy is a pompon-like “fancy” dahlia of deep burgundy-red irregularly splashed with bits of white — like a sparkling garnet brooch or maybe a tiny, antique velvet sofa with lacy antimacassars. Reintroduced by us from the British National Collection of Dahlias. 1-2”, 3’, from Holland. Chart & care.
