With Coseytown Goldilocks, you’ve found the one that’s just right! A few seasons ago I had several visitors that gushed over this varieties color. The deep, moody honey mustard yellow of their dreams. The saturated gold tone that’s just right to enrich neutral color palettes that are in vogue. Goldilocks loves showing off for the camera too, capturing light in a way that the bloom keeps its integrity, and the viewer can remember the details. Plus, who can’t love the extra ruffle each petal has?
LeeAnn's Hybridizer Notes Coseytown Goldilocks is a no-nonsense plant. Once planted and pinched, I don’t have to fuss with it all season - an ‘easy keeper’, which is one of the best qualities a dahlia can have in my book. Goldilocks also makes an abundance of well storing tubers - so much so I’ve never had any reason to want to propagate from cuttings. Coseytown Goldilocks is a reliable early August bloomer, having been planted out as tubers in mid-May here in south central PA. The plant has an upright growth habit that requires support due to its height. Its stems are strong and are not prone to bending or snapping.
Here at Coseytown Flowers we specialize in the creation, cultivation and sale of new dahlia varieties, with leading plant traits in health, growth and vigor, for the cut-flower and enthusiast markets.
Leading the charge is LeeAnn Huber - the dahlia hybridizer, educator, flower farmer and entrepreneur behind it all. Prioritizing continual growth in knowledge and practice is our guiding star, and LeeAnn's passion for lifelong learning and applying evidenced based approaches in an agricultural context is embodied in her daily mantra ‘Every day is a school day!’ LeeAnn has amassed a sizable and engaged following among fellow cut flower farmers and gardening enthusiasts, where she is known for taking topics head on in a thoughtful and engaging way while sharing her expertise on all things dahlias.
Coseytown Flowers strives to offer only the highest quality single-division dahlia tubers and premium dahlia seed. All dahlia tubers are guaranteed true to variety, and I will never sell anything I would not personally be satisfied to receive myself ...but don't just take our word for it, check out what our flower friends are sharing.
All our tubers are individually labeled, and all orders are individually inspected for quality and accuracy prior to shipment. Additionally, international tuber orders (currently Canada) are individually inspected by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture. Coseytown Flowers dahlia fields and storage facilities are inspected annually by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture and we possess all needed inspections and licensing to sell dahlia tubers and seed. Every dahlia tuber and seed sold have been grown right here in Greencastle, PA.
At the heart of our mission is the Coseytown commitment to transparency with continual growth in our core values of healthy plants, happy pollinators and responsible production. We take the health of our plants and tubers seriously by testing for and providing our dahlia plants with the proper conditions, nutrition and proactive management for optimal plant and pollinator health. We also proactively test for Cucumber mosaic virus (CMV), Tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV), Impatiens necrotic spot virus (INSV) and Tobacco mosaic virus (TMV).

All sale inventory is allocated (sold) during the sale; we cannot reserve product or process sales prior to the sale launch, nor accept requests for items after they have sold out, for any reason. In the unfortunate event that allocated product should become unavailable for any reason, including unfitness or overallocation due to malfunction or error, we reserve the right to issue refunds and cancellations for affected items. We cannot offer 'next-season' reservations. Due to the perishable nature of goods being sold, sale items are ineligible for exchange or return.
