cafe au lait dahlia

My days are full of flowers right now and I'm loving the stunning ruffly blooms of cafe au lait.  So beautiful. 

I planted just 9 plants in a row this spring and I think I'll have to plant more next year.  They're blooming like crazy these days and I love them grouped together in a big bunch of many blooms.

An arrangement I made for a wedding reception last weekend.  With eucalyptus and grasses.  wow!  Simply and naturally gorgeous!

Here's cafe au lait in some bouquets for a bride and her bridesmaid, bundled together with limelight hydrangea, other dahlias, zinnias, roses, sweet pea and grasses.

I think the unopened buds are beautiful in bouquets too.

Cafe au Lait, I'm going to miss you when the summer's over!


  1. Love your post, shared it at

  2. Thanks for letting me know, Mary! I enjoyed looking around your fb page and realized that you're in NZ and your dahlias have been blooming beautifully for a while now....I'm just getting ready to plant mine now! Fun to think of that : )

  3. Christina, these are gorgeous, do you know where I could purchase some tubers?
