What cream colored dahlias do you grow?

This variety normally looks like the left side, but my plant is having fun this season! I prefer the right side... I hear Cafe au Lait has been very popular for weddings recently.

Perhaps this one might fit into your cream-colored search... I think the undertones are the same as Cafe au Lait, with a blush on the tips. I alternate from disliking its color as a single bloom to really liking it for bouquets to blend two color palettes together. It's growing on me, but I have to admit that its name seems to fit when I look at it on the plant, compared to almost any other bloom in my beds. Quite frankly, I feel the same way with Cafe au Lait's color, so this is purely color bias.

Here's another one that might fit the cream dream scheme... Valley Porcupine had a pink blush to it earlier in the season, but has more of that neutral beige color now.

Breakout started out cream colored for me with later blossoms having the apricot/yellow centers. When I gave bouquets to neighbors this was the one chosen first by several people.

Cornbride is an interesting parchment color, probalby about as close to "Cream" as dahlias come. I would say it is about 2 shades lighter then Cafe au Lait, but next to pure white it would show as creamy.

Shilo Jazzman Also bloomed quite creamy in my garden, next to Blizzard which was defintiely whiter.

If you haven't grown Peaches N Cream you really ought to try it...(Note, this is not the same as Peaches and Cream.)
