Dahlia ‘Yvonne’ one of our most useful and productive dahlias. Warm peachy pink tones blend easily and the waterlily shape fills lots of space in arrangements.
I love mixing Dahlia ‘Yvonne’ with garden roses elevating your design to something really special.
Dahlia ‘Yvonne’ is a must for the cut flower grower, stake well for long strong stems all season.
We knew we would never have enough tubers to split for everyone that wanted one and this Dahlia is so difficult to get hold of that I have asked our supplier to provide me with a some extra tubers on my order so that I can share them with you.

Cutting /Vase Life:
Dahlias do not continue to open once cut so pick when blooms are ¾ of the way open. Check the back of the flower head to check all the petals are perfect. The petals turn papery, drop and lose colour once they start to go over. Deadhead flowers to give plants back the energy to ripen the next flower rather than work on producing seed.
Place flowers straight into ready buckets of water, we rest our blooms for a few hours in water, this is called conditioning.
