Café Au Lait Dinnerplate Dahlia is the Dahlia to grow if you only have room for one. Big dinner-plate sized flowers steal the show in shades of creamy white tinted with apricot, pink, rose, and a touch of beige. These easy-to-grow perennials bloom from mid-summer to fall on sturdy stems and make choice cut flowers. In fact, the more you cut them, the more they bloom! For longer stems, snip out the center of each plant when they reach 18" to encourage lower branching and longer stems. Café Au Lait Dahlias are lovely planted in a perennial border where other plants can help support the big blooms. Staking may also be required to support the large flowers. 36-48" tall x 18-24" wide.
