DAVID HOWARD, 1960        New
This dark-leaved, not-so-tall dahlia was a favorite of the great Christopher Lloyd who wrote that it “deserves every scrap of the praise lavished on it. Above bronze foliage, it carries a prodigal, non-stop succession” of apricot-orange flowers that “show up brightly from afar.” Lloyd paired it with lavender Verbena bonariensis and ornamental grasses for a combination that would look stunning in your garden, too. Formal decorative, 3-4”, 2½-4’, from Holland. Chart & care.

DEUIL DU ROI ALBERT, 1936        
Still a popular favorite in Europe (and with us), “Dwee doo” is easy to grow and loaded with 4-6 inch flowers of royal purple tipped with white — sometimes more so, sometimes less — for an effect that’s surprisingly elegant. Albert, the beloved “people’s king” of Belgium, died in 1934, hence its decidedly antique name: “Mourning for King Albert.” Re-introduced by us in 2002 from the UK National Collection. 4-6”, 4-5’, heat-tolerant, from Oregon. Chart & care.

GERRIE HOEK, 1942        New
Is this really “the most popular dahlia of all time”? That’s what experts have called this shell-pink beauty, praising it as “a superb cut flower” with “splendid stems” that’s “easy to grow,” great in the garden, and “the ideal waterlily” dahlia. Who could ask for anything more? 3-4”, 3-4’, from Holland. Chart & care.

GLORIE VAN HEEMSTEDE, 1947        Rarest
There’s a Zen-like simplicity to waterlily dahlias. With fewer petals than most, they have a peaceful, uncluttered look, proving once again that less can be more. Winner of the Stredwick Medal, one of the dahlia world’s highest awards, ‘Glorie’ is a buttery yellow of classic form, early blooming, and loaded with flowers. Strong stems make it great for bouquets. 4-5”, 4-5’, from New Hampshire. Chart & care.

GOLDEN HEART, 1955        Rarest
This sunburst of beauty is a warm red-orange brightened by what seem to be rays of golden light streaming from its center. It’s dazzling anytime but we like it best as it carries the torch of summer deep into the cool, waning days of fall. Aka ‘Mary Poppins’, semi-cactus, 6-10”, 4-5’, from Oregon. Chart & care.

GYPSY GIRL, 1947        Web-Only & Rarest
We didn’t expect to offer this variegated beauty until next spring, but it multiplied so well for us that here it is! Its petals of soft lavender-to-pink-to-white are decorated with a confetti of ruby speckles and flecks for a look that’s as festive as a birthday party. Bred by Albert Parrella of the Bronx, formal decorative, 4-6”, 4-5’, grown exclusively for us in Holland. Chart & care.

JERSEY’S BEAUTY, 1923        Rarest
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.

JUANITA, 1949        
‘Juanita’s big, jewel-toned flowers are a whirl of narrow, curving petals of deep, vibrant burgundy and ruby. Bred in South Africa and named for a flamenco dancer, it’s been one of the most popular dahlias on six continents for decades. 6”, 4-5’, heat-tolerant, from Oregon. Chart & care.

KAISER WILHELM, 1881        
As seen full-page in Horticulture! This rare souvenir from a lost age is the most antique-looking of all of our dahlias. With neatly curled petals of custard yellow brushed with burgundy, and a green button-eye like an old-fashioned rose, it’s a true Victorian “fancy” dahlia — and one of a mere handful of dahlias that survive from the 10,000 grown in the 19th century. We’re proud to have returned it to American gardens, and we hope you’ll help us preserve it! 3”, 4-5’, from Oregon. Chart & care.

KELVIN FLOODLIGHT, 1959        New
This giant dinner-plate is the biggest dahlia we offer — a huge 10 to 12 inches across when well grown — but size is only one of its many impressive qualities. It’s also so easy to grow that it’s often recommended for beginners. It blooms a lot, its stems are strong, and its sunny, light yellow color manages to be bright without being glaring or harsh. Gardeners have been enjoying it for over 50 years now, and it always impresses the neighbors! Formal decorative, 8-12”, 3-5’, from Holland. Chart & care.
