Dahlia Peaches n’ Cream is one of the most beautiful, the most productive and the best cut flower varieties I am growing this year. I am so in love with this pretty little dahlia. A gorgeous bloom, and this seasons favourite.
Most productive dahlia
Every year is different, and every growing season is different. You never know what the temperatures will be like, or how many rain will fall. And you never know which plants will do well. That’s the fun of gardening. It can be a little frustrating at times, but you can’t beat nature, you have to work with it. Every year, there is a different dahlia variety that is stealing the show. Last year, it was dahlia Labyrinth. I even wrote an entire blog post about it: 3 reasons to grow dahlia Labyrinth. But this year, the prize for the most productive variety goes to Peaches n’ Cream.
And it’s not only a super flower producer, but Peaches n’ Cream is also a very pretty dahlia. Each petal is a warm peachy-orange that fades to pink and white at the tip. The effect is absolutely stunning! The flower petals curve back, and I just love these wavy petals.
Most photogenic flower
Because of these petals, it is also a very photogenic dahlia. With a soft shine, just like silk. And of course, such pretty colours; orange, peach, pink and white. There is no other dahlia quite like it.
Great in arrangements
The gorgeous blooms are reasonably small, about 10 cm. (4 inches), and have long stems which are so handy – even though sometimes you prefer them cut short. I like to grow varieties in different sizes, forms and colours. I love the giant, dinner plate dahlias, but they are not always the easiest flowers to use in arrangements. Peaches n’ Cream is!
Peaches n’ Cream is a must grow
This is the first year I am growing Peaches n’ Cream and what a discovery! I think it’s a must grow, but watch out if you want to order this dahlia. Peaches and Cream is another variety and from what I can tell, not half as pretty. I bought my tubers from Zeelanddahlia.

Hey Pauline, I love reading your blog. Really gorgeous photography!
I am desperate to get Peaches n’ cream and Rockstar but they aren’t sold in the uk and a few websites in Netherlands I checked don’t have them in stock either. Would you be able to help me out and sell a few if you have any spare ones or point me to a place to that still stocks them.
As well could you please do me a massive favour and recommend a few dahlias below 80cm. I need some for the front of the boarder for the cottage garden I am trying to create. Thank you so much in advance for your advice!!!
Hello Katya, thank you! Peaches n’ Cream is very popular this year. I have already sent tubers to some dahlia friends, so I am afraid I don’t have any to spare. And I know the dahlia breeder I bought them from last year is already sold out 🙁
You can buy Rock Star from http://www.ilovedahlia.com, they send to the UK. For shorter dahlias, I would recommend Totally Tangerine, one of my absolute favourites, or Happy Single Kiss, or Groovy. Hope this helps!
Witam z Polski! jestem oczarowana Twoimi artykułami o daliach! Też je uprawiam, fotografuje i robię małe lokalne wystawy z koleżanką. Twoje artykuły to świetna inspiracja dla mnie! Dziękuję!
