Florelie new release dahlias for 2021

I am delighted to introduce you to our 2021 new release dahlias! Releasing a new dahlia from our farm takes 3 years of growing and evaluating, discarding varieties along the way until the ones which prove they are keepers remain.

Florelie Joy

A bright pink bloom with peachy undertones and a purpley center. Miniature decorative. 


Florelie Oracle

Dusty pink with little gold tips. Excellent cut flower, reliable and productive. A personal favourite as well as very popular with the florists we supply. 


Florelie Pirouette

A beautiful pastel pink dahlia with a pale lemony centre. This variety is a bit later to start blooming on our farm but once it starts every harvestable stem is snapped up for orders. If you live in a warmer climate with a longer flowering season it would be worth trialling this one.


Florelie Rosetta

A lovely bright red and a great cut flower variety. Ball shaped blooms are firm to the touch and long lasting in the vase. 


Florelie Sunburst

A bright yellow decorative bloom. This variety was an exclusive release to workshop attendees in 2021 and a competition was held to name the variety. It will be released to the public in 2022.


Florelie Queen of Hearts

A rich plum tone with a high petal count. Plants are productive and consistently flower throughout the season. I’d recommend this as a garden variety but not for a flower farm. Stem length is slightly shorter than required for commercial cut flowers but fine for cutting and putting in a vase at home. The layers of petals remind me of the Victorian ‘ruff’ a pleated collar historically worn by the elite including kings and queens of England. 


I hope you have loved reading about these new varieties we are releasing in 2021.

You can purchase tubers for most of these varieties in my online shop sometime between July-November each year.

If you have a question that I didn’t answer please send me an email at and let me know, chances are there are others who are wondering the exact same thing and I can include it in the FAQ section below for future readers.

Happy growing!
