    OUR COMMITMENT TO HEALTHY DAHLIAS
    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.

    Say hello to Coseytown Honey Pot! While there are gems to be found all over the world, you’ll only find this beaming ray of sunshine right here. I knew from the first time Coseytown Honey Pot bloomed that she was going to be very special. 

    Honey Pot is a delightful, one-of-a-kind genetic wonder that defies easy classification - having not only three layers of ray florets -a classic example of a peony form- but also including contrasting petaloids in keeping with a collarette AND THEN crowning itself with the golden tubular disc florets of an anemone dahlia! As graceful as it is rare, Coseytown Honey Pot grows to 4’ tall and will proudly take center stage in any garden, producing long, gently flowing branches with an abundance of 2” blooms.

    LeeAnn's Hybridizer Notes
    This little wonder of a dahlia grew from seed sourced from Erin Benzakein of Floret Flower Farm in their very first public mixed dahlia seed offering! Coseytown Honey Pot is my favorite variety when scouting for native pollinators, especially butterfly and moth species. I must wonder if she really does make nectar for pollinators to extract with their flexible straw-like mouthparts (also called proboscis). This plant will do well when grown with some support, such as a decorative obelisk trellis. Coseytown Honey Pot exceeds my vase life expectations when picked after the ray florets first open but before the anemone center fully develops. Do not fret though if these blooms remain on the plant as they will continue to look beautiful for a very long time. Honey Pot’s tubers store best in tubs packed with vermiculite and held around 90% humidity.
