Café au Lait dahlia is a florist and wedding favorite, and the piece de resistance for any bridal bouquet. This bodacious bloom is one of our most popular varieties due to its gorgeous color, ornate details, and extremely large, full, dinnerplate size. They range from creamy to blushy depending on the temperature. This listing is for a single dahlia tuber.
Eyes are the vegetative growing points of the tuber. The body of the tuber provides the dahlia with nutrition and energy to grow. Dahlia tubers are visually inspected for eyes before shipping—each tuber will have at least one visible eye. Eyes may sometimes break off in transit, but new growth will come from where the eye was previously.
Each order will arrive with instructions on growing your dahlia tubers. Dahlias prefer full sun, which means 6-8+ hours of sunlight per day. Hold off on watering your tuber until you see it sprout above ground. Each tuber needs approximately 2 square feet of growing space. Dahlias like well-draining soil, so don’t plant them in soil that is too wet. We recommend staking this variety of dahlia.
