This listing is for one packet of Dwarf hybrid x Dahlia sherffii's dahlia seed containing 20 seeds collected from Beeline II seedlings.
With permission from dahlia hybridizer Dr. Keith Hammett of New Zealand, Coseytown Flowers is pleased to offer seed collected from Beeline II dahlias grown here at Coseytown. The Beeline II seedlings were grown in isolation to minimize cross pollination potential with varieties from the other fields. Beeline II are single open-centered dahlias bred to display beautiful foliage on plants 3' or less, and include colors across the entire dahlia color spectrum. If you are looking for a truly unique garden dahlia, look no further!
This one may be a dwarf hybrid cross, but she's been around the world and in our hearts she's as big as the promise of a coming day. Fall in love with Dwarf hybrid x Dahlia sherffii - she knows love can endure, and you know it will... and you know it will...
Growing Dahlias from Seed
You are planting a treasure to be explored in your garden when you plant dahlias from seed. Dahlia seeds DO NOT grow true to the parent variety and there are endless possibilities when growing dahlias from seed. Each seed is a surprise! Please note that while I select only the finest seeds for sale (plump, dark, firm, and free of mildew), dahlia germination rates are known to be variable and germination rate is UNKNOWN. You accept this when you purchase this product.
Dahlia seedlings bloom and make tubers in one growing season. Follow your growing zone recommendations for planting and harvesting; a general rule of thumb is to plant dahlias when you plant your tomatoes (after your last frost and when soil temps are above 55°F). I prefer to start my dahlia seeds indoors 4-6 weeks before planting out. I have had success planting seedlings with 4-5 leaf sets in the field after the last frost.
