New Release Dahlia Varieties 2022

Let us introduce you to our wonderful new dahlia varieties for 2022! We’ve grown these varieties for 3 seasons now – starting them from seed in the 2019/2020 season. They’ll all be available for purchase in late August. Make sure you’re on the mailing list by following this link to sign up – the sale has been highly competitive in the past and will be exclusively advertised to those on the mailing list.

You’ll notice that many of these new varieties are the result of seed swaps that we have done with other growers. In Autumn 2019 the farm had two early frosts that impacted our ability to save seed. Many thanks to LeeAnn from Coseytown Flowers, Sarah from Unfurlings and Sam from Wild Violet Farm for helping us to have a successful 2020 seedling year after all.

Please note that plant height is highly variable with dahlias depending on the growing conditions. We have included average plant heights here as a guide only.

Florelie Tutu

A soft lilac which at times appears pink with pointy fimbriated petals. Fimbriated petals are also known as laciniated petals which means they have split tips.  This variety is easy to cut from and provides great variation of shape in an arrangement. This seed was obtained through a seed swap with LeeAnn from Coseytown Flowers in Pennsylvania USA.

Classification: Miniature Informal Decorative

Plant Height: 100 cm

Florelie Bordeaux

 A dark and velvety burgundy with a high petal count.  The flowers last well on the plant and softly fade as the back petals age giving an interesting ombre look.  The blooms turn more magenta as the weather gets cooler in autumn. This seed was obtained through a seed swap with LeeAnn from Coseytown Flowers in Pennsylvania USA.

 

Classification: Miniature Informal Decorative

Plant Height: 100cm

Florelie Whipped Cream

A dramatic, wavy petalled decorative bloom.  The plants produce long stems and many blooms over the season.  A good, cool white colour. This variety has a clear link through the petal shape to its seed parent, Peaches n Cream. This seed was obtained through a seed swap with LeeAnn from Coseytown Flowers in Pennsylvania USA.

Classification: Small Informal Decorative

Plant Height: 150cm

Florelie Chryssie

This variety produces many incredibly cute blooms over the season.  It is easy to harvest and has lovely long, straight stems.  Although the petal count is lower than many Florelie varieties, it is an incredibly important variety in the cut flower repertoire on the farm, particularly for wedding orders.

Classification: Miniature Informal Decorative (similar size to a pompon dahlia)

Plant Height: 110-120cm

Florelie Baroness

Although the plants are shorter, this variety provides good, straight stems for cutting and often has an upright facing bloom. Upright facing blooms are great for using in bunches. The blooms are a dark lilac colour with a high petal count. This seed was obtained through a seed swap with Sam from Wild Violet Farm in Victoria.

Classification: Small Formal Decorative

Plant Height: 80cm

Florelie Guava

This variety is a deep watermelon colour with dramatic dark purple stems and dark green leaves. Early on in the season especially, the flowers have a darker outline to the petals. Each petal also has a delightful gold tip. This is a productive variety that lasts well in a vase considering its larger size. This seed was obtained through a seed swap with Sam from Wild Violet Farm in Victoria.

Classification: Small Formal Decorative

Plant Height: 100-120cm

Florelie Paradise

These blooms are a lovely colour that could be classed as coral, burnt orange or watermelon – it fills many colour needs on the farm and is a popular shade in current trends.  This variety is very productive, we would recommend cutting every bloom if possible to manage the plant habit. This seed was obtained through a seed swap with Sarah from Unfurlings in New Zealand.

Classification: Miniature Informal Decorative

Plant Height: 80cm

Florelie Cowrie

This tiny flower has the growth habit of a spray rose, often with multiple blooms opening on a stem at the same time.  The flowers are about 5cm in diameter and are a cool white colour with a blush of lilac in the centre.  The stems improve over the season with consistent picking. Make sure to pinch growing tips out of the plants twice early on in the season to avoid overly thick stems. This seed was obtained through a seed swap with Sarah from Unfurlings in New Zealand.

Classification: Miniature Formal Decorative

Plant Height: 100cm

Florelie Macaw

This variety has tall plants with incredibly strong stems that are very long and easy to pick.  The flowers are a perfect crimson colour with great stem attachment and bloom angle. The petal count is on the low side but is a lovely open shape for variation in arrangements.

Classification: Miniature Informal Decorative

Plant Height: 150cm

Florelie Sunburst

A very bright yellow decorative bloom. This variety was an exclusive release to workshop attendees in 2021 and a competition was held amongst workshop attendees to name the variety. 2022 is the first year this will be released to the general public as part of our tuber sale.

Classification: Miniature Formal Decorative

Plant Height: 80cm

Lovely selection of newbies. My favourites are Florelie Tutu, Florelie Baroness, Florelie Guava, Florelie Paradise because I am looking for pink/cerise tones this year. I am also looking for the larger flower size (dinnerplate) as a preference but all these are delightful.

Love them all, but if I have to choose, Bordeaux, Whipped Cream, Paradise and Sunburst. During the floods here on the north coast your dahlias were the only ones to survive.

Hi Lorelie,
I’m really curious to know how much difference you see over the 3 years trial period? Do the flowers change much in those early years?
Thanks!

There are so many gorgeous colours. I have several that are pink and lemon, so this year I love the whiter ones – Whipped Cream and Cowrie. It was very, very, wet in my part of Sydney in February/March and I had to buy taller, stronger stakes for some dahlias, but others may have rotted, so will have to see what happens in Spring and Summer.
