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 visually-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).

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 within that 30 day window. 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, from one to a hundred + tubers. Tubers will be shipped early-mid April this year. Everything is sent USPS Priority.

Image Clearview Daniel
Ball Yellow--number one in it's class, by a LONG shot, with a Derrill Hart Medal and almost 200 wins for 2017. Tubers tend to be plentiful and small 'pinkie-length' with skinny necks; I often divide into miniclumps instead of individual tubers if necks are too skinny. If tubers start to wrinkle in storage, pot immediately; however, they tend to store very well. Very clear yellow bloom with excellent form with good stems on a shorter plant covered with blossoms nonstop.This variety has been in my garden for years, and I plan on growing it for many more.

Image Islander
Large Informal Decorative Dark Pink - Growing 4 ft for me, this variety has huge blooms with no disbudding or pampering, with 4-6 flowers going at a time! It is truly impressive. The tubers are moderate quantity that resemble smallish lightbulbs, storing VERY well. Although I'm not typically a fan of pink, Islander's broad wavey petals and calming tone has won me over to keeping this variety in my garden for a few more years.

Image Bloomquist Globe--SOLD OUT again, sorry
B FD Yellow This is a spectacular bloom that demands attention! Grows to 4 ft in my garden, with luscious petals darker on the reverse side. The color changes depending on the temperature, sometimes showing a picotee edge. Tubers can be challenging to keep, so you won't see many for sale out there as this variety does best in a pot buried in the ground. Well worth the extra step... try this beauty today!

Image Myrtle's Brandy- SOLD OUT
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.

A ID Y -In addition to receiving the Darrill Hart Medal, this brilliantly yellow variety is well-known for the tall height it can achieve in shaded areas.

An awesome variety, all the way around!

Image Bloomquist Laura- SOLD OUT
Medium Semi-Cactus Lavender - This light purple beauty wowed me when it first bloomed in my garden... I kept checking its tag to confirm its name, and planted every single tuber out the next year to make sure I would have plenty for myself. VERY NICE INDEED!

Image Bloomquist Rose
Small Formal Decorative Flame Blend - Very smooth fiery bloom that keeps you fascinated by the vibrancy of the colors. I have bought this variety every year since it was introduced, and this is the first season I actually saw it bloom and have a tuber crop. Maybe others have a different experience, but as it seems to not be available elsewhere, I would highly recommend potting on arrival, and burying the pot at planting time. This is an easy precaution for a gorgeous bloom, so this variety can be preserved for years to come. VERY LIMITED STOCK

Image Fancy Pants- SOLD OUT
Orchette Lavender - This darling variety has always done very well in the shows. The bloom is very distinctive with the petal edges curling perfectly. Please be aware that all open-centered dahlias tend to be poor keepers in the vase; I just enjoy mine in the garden, and find endless amusement in how many pollinators can crowd on the golden pollen center at one time. Tubers keep well, but tend to be small and thumb-shaped.
