New Release 2021
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.
A bright pink bloom with peachy undertones and a purpley center. Miniature decorative.
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.
A lovely bright red and a great cut flower variety. Ball shaped blooms are firm to the touch and long lasting in the vase.
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.
