Finding dahlia varieties with the perfect muted colors that designers can actually use in their high end floral work has been an ongoing quest here at Floret. Slowly, and through a ton of trialing, our collection of treasures has been steadily growing.
If you’re growing for wedding florists, to supplement your own event work, or just to make beautiful things, I’m hopeful that these dahlia color palettes will help and inspire you in choosing what to grow this year.
All but one of the varieties featured below are in our shop and will be going on sale very soon. If you want to have some serious fun, you can now sort all of the varieties by individual, or combined colors. A total dream come true for a color nut like me!
