Dandy Collarette Dahlia
Vigorous and showy low-growing plants.
These multi-colored, seed-grown dahlias form a conspicuous row of inner petals–somewhat resembling dapper, young gentlemen all dressed up in ruffled collars. Bushy, dwarf habit plants display unapologetically jolly blooms on long, stiff stems that hold up well in floral arrangements. These fine fellows attract beneficial pollinators and bring good cheer to your borders and beds.
When the growing season is done, save the tubers from your favorite plants if you want only these specific varieties blooming the following year.
About Hudson Valley Seed Company
These folks are both farmers and storytellers. They are committed to growing organically, sourcing locally and sustainably, and preserving crop diversity by selecting unique, rare, and hard-to-find varieties. All of their seeds are open pollinated, many are heirloom and organic, and they are never GMO. They were one of the first companies to sign the Open Source Seed Initiative (OSSI), and remain committed to their values of sustainability.
They believe that a seed is more than meets the eye: it is a time capsule telling tales of the plants, crops, and people that came before us. Every seed has a story, sometimes going back thousands of years. At Hudson Valley Seed Company, they aim to celebrate these stories, and they’ve found the best medium in which to do so is art. Each year, they commission artists to tell the story of a particular seed variety.
