Dahlia seeds have a lower germination success rate than most seeds. You can expect anywhere from a 20-80% germination rate. The range is so wide as larger dahlias and closed center dahlias tend to have lower success rates. I’ve done my best to hand select ripe and full dahlia seeds. There is no guarantee on size, shape, or color on dahlias grown from seed. Each one will be unique and beautiful. Most dahlias grown from seed will produce open centered dahlias.
This gorgeous green, blue, and purple stemmed plant makes a great early season bouquet filler. Stems fade from green to blue to purple and have almost a silver tint to them. Popular with the pollinators too!
