Cornel is a mainstay at the Farm, a deep red ball dahlia with superior petal structure that provides a focal point for late summer and autumn bouquets. Four-foot plants produce long-lasting four- to five-inch blooms on amazingly long, strong stems. Cornel blooms comparatively late in the season, but the Lynch Creek crew calls it well worth the wait.
Maarn combines incredible color with long, strong stems, making it a must-have for cut-flower use and a stunner in the garden. Andy calls it "easily the best orange" at the Farm; its soft color makes it super in mixed bouquets. Another formal decorative dahlia with a deep round shape, it's about five inches across. Plants grow to four and a half feet.
Midnight Sun shines bright in the garden. Showy bright yellow formal decorative dahlias show peachy overtones accented by dark foliage. An exhibitor's dream, this is an incredible garden dahlia. Blossoms are four to six inches across; plants grow to three and a half feet. Fully mature blooms sometimes appear darker in the center.
Kasasagi produces "tons" of two-inch flowers each season on a three-foot bush. An attractive pom pon dahlia, it combines red and yellow in a neat round bloom and is always popular for cutting. Its color makes it a desirable border plant as well; it's no wonder Lynch Creek has a hard time keeping it in stock.
