Description

The dreamy, voluptuous blooms of dahlia ‘Café Au Lait’ have proven enormously popular for their unique, milky, coffee-like complexion. Petals unfurl like delicate whisps of cream, swirling with warm shades of caramel, taupe, peach, and blush. The sumptuous, pillowy flowers bring a romantic, languid softness to beds and borders, continuing from July to October. Each gorgeous flower head can reach up to 10 inches across, making a breath-taking focal point to floral arrangements and bouquets. Enjoy the ultimate indulgence of sipping your morning latte, overlooking a garden or vase overflowing with ‘Café Au Lait’.

Care Guide

To grow Dahlias, select a sunny spot with well-drained soil, and dig a 30cm deep hole. Plant the tuber 10cm below the soil surface, spacing multiple tubers 45cm apart, or 90cm for taller varieties. Water consistently, maintaining moist but not saturated soil and protect new shoots from slug damage with eco-friendly methods. Feed plants during the blooming period with liquid plant food. Provide support for stems which will reach 60-90cm tall depending on variety. Enjoy spectacular blooms from late summer until first frosts. Cut or deadhead the flowers regularly for a continually flourishing display. Once blooming has finished, cut back foliage before lifting, drying and storing the tubers in peat-free substitute, in a frost-free place until the following spring.
