Dahlia Cafe au Lait

If ever a flower was perfectly named, then dahlia 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 but Cafe au Lait isn't going to fade into the background.

The huge, decorative flowers can reach 25cm across, with fully double flower heads with flat or slightly incurved florets. Certainly no shrinking violet! The divided, dark green foliage sets off the blooms perfectly.

Great In Your Garden

Dahlia Cafe au Lait 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.

However, don't think they are out of place in your garden. They make excellent flowers for beds and borders, where blooms will be prolific but smaller if not disbudded. Don't forget to keep cutting and deadheading to encourage plants to produce more flowers.

As long as the flower heads are well supported, they will do well in large containers but keep them well fed and supplied with a steady supply of water.
