Coseytown First Bloom


Thank you for your interest in our original Coseytown dahlia creations brought to you by independent American dahlia hybridizer LeeAnn Huber and the Coseytown Flowers team! Our investments into the cut flower and dahlia enthusiast community are paid for by the plants we propagate and sell to you. Thank you for your support of:

  • An independent occupational American dahlia hybridizer

  • A self-supporting family farm and local employer

  • A woman-owned small business dedicated to driving progress and innovation

    At Coseytown Flowers we are fully inspected and licensed by the State of Pennsylvania for the production and distribution of plant materials and seed
    . Our proactive management practices include disinfection using 10% bleach solution between every plant rotating snips. We have an expert’s eye and a ZERO tolerance policy for symptomatic plants. As a component of our disease management plan, our active pest management plan utilizes a variety of measures based on seasonal risk level with continual monitoring from first planting until final tuber harvest.

    We test for common RNA and DNA dahlia viruses including TSWV, TSV, INSV, and DMV and make substantial costly recurring investments into ongoing proactive dahlia health management, testing and research to create and utilize best practices in the responsible propagation of our plant stock. Recent investments into our virus testing and research program include 5-figures worth of direct cost investments. CLICK HERE to learn more about Coseytown Flowers and the work that we do.

    Meet a dahlia that will always hold a special place in my heart. While we've always called her Coseytown First Bloom, you can also call this one ‘The OC’ (original Coseytown). The dahlia experience that caught me hook, line, and sinker. Coseytown First Bloom is my first dahlia that ever bloomed from seed.

    While First Bloom has been kept in the field for sentimental reasons for many years with no plans for propagation, over the seasons many visitors have commented on this specific dahlia’s appeal and encouraged its release.

    Coseytown First Bloom produces mostly top-facing blooms and looks amazing wrapped in a bunch. She grabbed attention when displayed at the 2022 National Dahlia Show's Cut Flower Display, being commented on, and fancied, by many.

    LeeAnn's Hybridizer Notes
    We have successfully grown Coseytown First Bloom all season long with no staking or plant supports used or required. While First Bloom starts out the season as a shorter and airier plant, pinching the first terminal bud in the spring will encourage the plant to grow an abundance of dark stems. This plant is reliably blooming by the 3rd to 4th week of July, having been planted out as tubers in mid-May here in south central PA. By mid-August, First Bloom is really hitting its stride and pushing out long, strong stems with full blooms. 18-to-20-inch stems are common.
