Dahlias, Cafe Au Lait-blush
Cafe Au Lait dahlias have been very popular since 2010. It has a unique range of colors and we supply the bulbs to local flower growers. We have Dahlia’s almost year round and the prices vary. The season is May – November when they are gown 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. ( see picture in gallery) Because it has so many extra buds we like to give you a care tip & handling tip on how to get those flowers to open. Take a strong container and poor in boiling water cut stems and put them right in there and leave them. Just a few inches is enough. 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 nation wide but you need to know Dahlias flowers are very delicate, the stems are hollow and somewhat brittle. Remove lower leaves and cut crisply at an angle using a sharp utensil. 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 re-cut every other day. Please order in advance and have them arrive to you on a Thursday if your event is on a Saturday. The greenhouse grown Cafe Au Lait are lighter in color during the winter weeks than the summer grown. Please note: This variety has over 10 different shades of color in the flower depending on time of the year and where 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.
