Dahlia Tuber: Cafe Au Lait
Dahlia 'Café au Lait'
This is a florist favoirte! It has a shorter vase life than some dahlias but makes up for it with stunning blush and cream colors and a beautful large bloom.
Flower type: dinnerplate
Site: full sun
Days to maturity: 80-100 days
Plant spacing: 18”
Pinch: when plants are 12” tall
Cut when blooms are ¾ of the way open, but not overly ripe. To do this, check the back of each flower head, looking for firm and lush petals versus papery or slightly dehydrated ones. Place into water with hydrator. Blooms will last 4-6 days.
