The heart of the hybridization program at Coseytown Flowers is firmly rooted in developing the best possible dahlias for profitable cut flower production. Our hybridization priorities have been shaped by our own experiences as a cut flower farm in search of the best varieties to bring maximum impact to both our operation and bottom line as a cut flower farm - and our enjoyment as dahlia enthusiasts too!
To earn the distinction Coseytown-Certified Cut Flower a variety must demonstrate its ability to consistently meet or exceed expectations on the following traits:
∙ Tuber Productivity and Storability
∙ Plant Growth Habit
∙ Stem Length and Strength
∙ Bloom Productivity
∙ Blossom Orientation
∙ Blossom Attachment
∙ Vase Life

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.
