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. Working with American Dahlia Society, I have been able to virus test a percentage of the plants every year to catch some virus early before visible signs, as well as to certify the virus-free status of samples of stock that are for sale (this stock is identified below in the variety description area). 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).

GUARANTEE: I guarantee dahlia tubers will arrive at your home healthy with viable eyes or sprouts. I do not guarantee that my tubers will win any tuber beauty pageants (click here for more on pretty tubers). Should there be any problems, please contact me within 30 days of receiving your order, with an image of the tuber. I want you to be happy. 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. Bonus tubers are not guaranteed.

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. If you desire no substitutions, I will refund your money for what I cannot provide. If you see you are missing a variety, please don't assume the bonus is a replacement, and definitely contact me to put things right. I don't like switched surprises in my purchased tubers and won't knowingly do it to you.

MULTIPLES: If you want to order MORE THAN 2 of a variety, please contact me first. I am a hobbyist grower, and often only have 2-3 plants to sell from. If I can accommodate your multiples order, I will, but advanced notice is preferable BEFORE you pay.

SHIPPING: Each order must have 'SHIPPING' included in your cart before checking out, unless you make plans to pick up. Shipping is a flat fee of $13 REGARDLESS of how many tubers you purchase. Tubers will be shipped early-mid April this year. Everything is sent USPS Priority, and you will receive a tracking number when it is shipped. Click HERE for shipping... be sure to 'add to cart.'

AA SC FL This variety grows to around 5' for me, with lots of blooms that have personality. The intensity of the orange and yellow flame seems to be in direct coorilation of how much sun each bloom gets, giving a nice mix of tones when gathered into a bouquet. At least in my garden, this variety needs serious disbudding to get to giant size... still large enough to impress, however. This is a 2017 new release. Click to see more images.

B C LB This medium cactus with yellow blended into pale orange tips is a standout at the shows, in bouquets and in the garden! Be warned- this variety can get quite tall in the garden (above 7'), and should be stopped by pinching out the top of the plant at least once in the early summer. Because of this tall tendency, its stems are wonderful to work with, either in design or for show. Click for more images. This is a 2018 new release and a sample of this stock was tested clean of virus in 2019.

BB C DP - This small dark pink cactus, with a hint of yellow, was introduced 45 years ago, but still holds its own on the judging bench. Great form and dark stems also makes it a stand-out in a vase. Excellent tuber-making paired with genuine good looks keeps this variety in grower's gardens through the years.

Image Myrtle's Brandy
BB FD DB Small -- This variety tends to fade from red to a delightful reddish orange blend in the sun. Fading can be GLORIOUS, and this variety shows other blooms how it should be done... notice the striped lines that become more pronounced when sun-kissed. Wonderfully full and recurved completely to the stem, it is a joy in the garden and provides a special 'pop' in bouquets. Tubers are AWESOME, with plenty to go around after winter.
