Looking to trade for white dahlia for cutting

Posted by girlndocs 8 WA (My Page) on

Hi all,

Here it is mid-May and I find myself without a single white dahlia for my cutflower bed.

I have several dahlias and other plants available for trade, see my trade list :)

I'm looking for a straight white or ivory variety that does well as a cutflower and doesn't have blooms too big; 6" or B is about my maximum. I'm partial to informal decoratives, anemones and waterlilies but open to suggestions (I'm not looking for pompons or balls, very formal decoratives, or novelty/collarettes).

Lady Liberty, Little Lamb, Snowflake, Prince Charming are examples of white dahlias I like. Try me.

Among my trade items are dahlias Bishop of Oxford (I understand it to be one of the "Bishop's Children," with dark foliage and orange blooms) and Cafe Au Lait, a great big muted beige-pink dinnerplate.

Kristin, where are you? Are you in driving distance of Vashon Island? I have several nice whites for cutting I would be glad to share with you, or start cuttings from but do to my recent knee replacement would need help digging them. Email me at

I have Center Court, Karma Serena, Angel Dust (I think I stll have it!) and I have many plants I would like to give away to replace with new ones..fine flowers, just ones I am bored with. Among those would be French Doll, and Brandon James. Many others could be divided. They ahve been in place for 2 years now.
