Blush Cafe Au Lait Dahlias
Cafe Au Lait dahlias are extremely popular. We have Dahlia’s almost year round and the prices vary. The season is May through November when they are grown outdoors in California. PLEASE NOTE BEFORE YOU BUY THIS DAHLIA: Cafe Au Lait is very hard to ship due to the fact some of the flowers are open and may not look so great after being shipped in a box overnight. Because it has so many extra buds, we like to give you a care and handling tips on how to get those flowers to open. Take a vase or container and pour in a few inches of boiling water. Leave the stems in the water. The hot water will transport up the stem and will help open the new flower buds. We have a special way of packing them for overnight shipment nationwide but you need to know dahlias are very delicate, the stems are hollow and somewhat brittle. Remove lower leaves and cut crisply at an angle using a sharp disinfected knife or shears. The flowers should be hydrated upon arrival. Dahlias release a lot of bacteria and tissue into the water so it is recommended that water be changed and stems re-cut every other day. Please order in advance. Please note that this variety has over 10 different shades of color in the flower depending on time of the year and where they are grown. We have no control over this when they arrive from our local growers. If you have never worked with dahlias before, ask someone to help you before you buy because they are sold as is.
