Now that dahlia season is almost over, I like to look at the most beautiful, the most productive and the best cut flower varieties I am growing this year. And dahlia Peaches n’ Cream is definitely one of them! 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 most productive variety goes to Peaches n’ Cream.
And it’s not only a super flower producer, 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 ofcourse, 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 inch), 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. Even though I love the giant, dinner plate dahlias, they are not the easiest flowers to use in arrangements. Peaches n’ Cream is!
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.
