Milena Fluer Dahlia Tuber
A beautiful muted peachy pink and yellow blend on a 4" decorative flower. My favorite new addition in 2022! The stems are super STRONG, straight, and the blooms are abundant. Like I was hitting the stems together to make music like a clave! I've never met a dahlia stem like it! As a result of her strong stems and abundant blooms, I recommend cutting aggressively or she'll make tight clusters of many blooms that can get a bit unruly--I had stems this season that had 5 blooms each on them!
The color is exquisite, and blends well with others. The combination of yellow brushstrokes on a pink petal almost made the petals seem translucent, like they'd been through a frost, but in a cool way? The petals are also more glittery than any other dahlia I've ever seen. They were pinker in the early season, and bit more brushed with yellow toward the fall. Just beautiful!
A really healthy, exuberant grower with a medium-sized, manageable plant.
