Black Narcissus

Waltzing Mathilda

La Recoletta

Crossfield Ebony (in front)

Black Narcissus: a prolific semi-cactus variety that will require staking for the longer stems and heavier heads. This dahlia rich in color and texture, and is a great floral cut.

While Waltzing Mathilda can be cut for the vase, we find it to not last as long as the other dahlias as a cut flower. However, it is a beautiful dahlia that grows upright without staking, and has the most beautiful dark stems, and cut-leaf dark foliage that is tipped with maroon edges, it’s a delightful plant.

This collection is 1 tuber of each variety, no substitutions will be made for the Dahlia Collections.

Laughing Goat Flower Farm® dahlias are grown chemical-free, in the fertile soil of the Enumclaw plateau. We use organic compost, bone meal, and Sluggo for early season slug management. We have built up our collection of dahlia varieties to be ideal for landscapes or cutting gardens, and are proud to offer disease-free stock.

We are not a large enough farm to offer wholesale to other growers. We appreciate you supporting our hard-work and efforts by purchasing retail from us.

*We don’t offer refunds on dahlia tuber stock, as we hand select and thoroughly examine each tuber for health and viability before it leaves the farm. Once in your hands, we have no control over your storage, environment or your growing conditions. We will send a sheet of growing culture information to help you with best practices for dahlias.
