Description

‘Kelsey Annie’ is a collarette dahlia I truly love, which Lou (my business partner) and I both fell on in a huge dahlia trial field two summers ago, unusually discreet, soft and delicate. I played with Fuzzy Felt as a child, and as you can imagine, I usually used it to make flowers. They looked just like this.

Care Tips

Support with a stout stick, tie in every couple of weeks. In the south you can mulch deeply and overwinter them in the ground, alternatively, lift and overwinter your dahlias frost free undercover.
