Cafe au Lait: Decorative Dahlia Tubers

If ever a flower was perfectly named, then Cafe au Lait is it! The ever-changing colours of the blooms end up the colour of a perfect milky coffee. They open pale pink, fading to a warm cream blush with a hint of peach and buff. It's one of those flowers that you can pair with everything without it fading into the background.
Browse our other Decorative Dahlias or our full range of Dahlias here.

The huge, decorative flowers can reach 25cm across, with fully double flower heads with flat or slightly incurved florets. The divided, dark green foliage sets off the blooms perfectly.
It is equally loved by exhibitors and flower arrangers, who value its unusual colour and ability to blend well with almost any other floral hue. When disbudded, the blooms can reach their maximum 25cm width and like peonies, it doesn't take many to fill a vase or wow show judges. They're also ideal for wedding bouquets and arrangements.

Growing Cafe au Lait Dahlias

All dahlias do best in deep rich soil with good drainage in a sunny spot. If it is windy they will need staking. They are greedy, thirsty plants so will need watering in dry spells, and they will always flower that little bit better if there is a bit of soluble food in the watering can once every couple of weeks.

It is generally more convenient to put support stakes in at planting time, rather than leaving it until there is foliage in the way.
