Floret flower farm is leading these days when it comes to Dahlias. On social media the beautiful photos are rising. Also this lady is certainly not standing still and writes one bestseller book after another. Certainly now that the Dahlia 'Cafe au Lait' is trending in the wedding scene, there is a great demand for this beautiful beauty. These days, the Dahlia 'Cafe au Lait' is all the rage in the wedding flower world and it’s not hard to see why. I’ve grown this beauty for a number of seasons but finally clued in and tucked 100 row feet into one of our greenhouses to get a jump on field plantings and provide an insulated environment for their big, pillowy blooms. Finding tubers is tough now that they’re so popular but if you start the hunt early on, say by Fall, you should be able to snag a few. Plants are stocky and have really large leaves so give them room and some super sturdy support. For longer stems, snip out the center of each plant when they are just 18″ tall to encourage low branching. The process, actually called pinching is really tough to implement since it seems counterintuitive to trim a small growing plant but if you can stomach it, you’ll be rewarded with monster stems like these all summer long.
