Coseytown Goldilocks

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 our operation and bottom line - and our enjoyment as dahlia enthusiasts too!

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.

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.

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 the following major DNA and RNA viruses: Dahlia mosaic virus (DMV), Dahlia common mosaic virus (DCMV), Impatiens necrotic spot virus (INSV), Tobacco streak virus (TSV) and Tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV).
