Dahlia ‘Shiloh Noelle’
Dahlia ‘Shiloh Noelle’ is promised to be the New ‘Cafe Au Lait’ with more flowers on shorter but very sturdy stems, intrigued?
I grew this for the first time last summer and loved it!
Huge and blousy, the flowers have a pale lavender centre that fades elegantly to near white at the edges of the petals.
I planted it together with Dahlia ‘Small World’ ‘Eveline’ and ‘Wizard of Oz’, the colours looked amazing together and the shapes complimentary.
I’m absolutely thrilled that we’ve been able to include Dahlia ‘Shiloh Noelle’ in our Annual Tuber Sale this year.

Cutting /Vase Life:
Dahlias do not continue to open once cut so pick when blooms are ¾ of the way open. Check the back of the flower head to check all the petals are perfect. The petals turn papery, drop and lose colour once they start to go over. Deadhead flowers to give plants back the energy to ripen the next flower rather than work on producing seed.
Place flowers straight into ready buckets of water, we rest our blooms for a few hours in water, this is called conditioning.
