Café au Lait

Café au Lait was introduced to dahlia lovers in 2005. She blooms heavily for such a large flower, producing large blooms 8-10” across on a robust plant that grows up to 4’ tall with sturdy stalks and leaves.

Café au Lait is gorgeous and unusual in her coloring, an exquisite creamy pink/peach with beige overtones.

Blossoms present upright on excellent strong stems; it’s a great cutter, long-lasting in bouquets and a wedding favorite.

Informal Decorative form – this means it has extra layers of petals, petals are broad and flat and likely to wave and flare, giving them a lovely playful look.

This and other blooms are available at the Ridgecrest Pub on NE 165th at 5th NE, for a donation to the Senior Center. New bouquets every Tuesday and Friday.

--Flowers and information from Ridgecrest resident John Hibbs, ND.
