This is probably the dahlia with the largest flower. So big and strong as its flowers are, so fine and delicate is its colour. When it opens up, it has a pink complexion that changes in subtle shades of creamy coffee as the flowers grow. Plant these dahlias in a warm, sunny spot in your garden, then you have the best results. Café au lait is a late-blooming dahlia, it takes some time to flower. It is definitely worth waiting.
