I am a dahlia enthusiast, selling/trading my extras to support my hobby. Most of my varieties are show quality. Most of the images are from my gardens. I am diligent in pulling out any virused plants during the growing season, and am diligent in using bleach to disinfect tools between plants/clumps. I am very careful in labeling/tracking each plant so the tubers have the correct variety name. This year, I am offering stock from a friend's garden as well, and he is every bit as particular as I am about virus control and labeling. You may contact me with questions through email cicivacation @aol.com (remove space) or message me using the mailbox here.

However, please understand that I can not be held liable for your storage or growing conditions, pests or other issues other then the sprouting ability of the tubers ordered.

SUBSTITUTIONS: I will not substitute specific varieties without your permission. Should I be out of a dahlia tuber or they did not store well, I will notify you as soon as possible, with suggested substitutions.

I don't like switched surprises in my purchased tubers and won't knowingly do it to you.

Image Hollyhill Cotton Candy
B IC DP -This incurved cactus variety has been winning awards since it was introduced in 2010. What's so fun about HH Cotton Candy is that it is fairly easy to grow lots of great blooms, BUT you probably won't obtain the signature bottom swirl without hard-earned dahlia-growing skill. The thumbnail image demonstrates its potential, as does a show image in the 'details,' where a massive bloom with the swirl towers over an average-grown bloom of the same variety. The garden images are from my beds, with intermediate skill and minimal disbudding. Go ahead... take the Cotton Candy Challenge... make it swirl!
