    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 virus 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 exclusive of time, labor, and other indirect costs.

    Meet Coseytown Mason, an easy-keeping vigorous and prolific plant with soft and earthy red-brown toned blooms. When florists see the unique coloring of Coseytown Mason their brains start to spark. Mason is often requested for warm neutral boho color palettes, as a compliment to copper, as a nice dark base for blush palettes, and more. 

    LeeAnn's Hybridizer Notes
    Coseytown Mason produces nice long stems with a single bloom at the top and is easy to quickly process in the field (strip leaves from stems) for cut flower sales. Coseytown Mason’s blooms can be harvested half-open and will continue to open over a few days for extended vase life.

    As a Coseytown-Certified Cut Flower, Mason has great vigor and a will to live. They get planted, pinched, and then take off blooming from August until frost with minimal upkeep required. It’s what we here at Coseytown like to call an ‘easy keeper’ – great output without a lot of input; a plant that loves to grow and doesn’t require a lot of fussing to do it.

    Coseytown Mason has an ideal tuber in terms of productivity, shape, size, and storability. Another perk is its tubers are very generous with producing eyes. I save every tuber with a crown because there is a high likelihood it will eye up in the spring.
