Shop Dahlia Alauna Clair-Obscur

An eye-catching, two-tone dahlia with a very unique look. Deep, burgundy-purple at the center, changing to violet and pure white at the tips. The quilled, fringed and slightly twisted petals give this flower lots of depth and movement. A favorite for bouquets.

Keith W. - Lyme, NH - on August 30, 2019
The dahlia tubers were all very healthy, grew rapidly, and have bloomed abundantly. I especially liked the Alauna Clair Obscur, with its beautiful deep purple color and exotic petals, and the Creme de Cassis, with its bicolor, shiny, long-lasting flowers. My only slight disappointment was the Rocco. Based on the photograph, I thought it would be a magenta color, but they are closer to burgundy — almost like a small version of the Jowey Mirella. I look forward to ordering dahlias again next year — your quality and selection are great! The hosta roots were also good quality. They yielded healthy, attractive plants, although I was hoping they might be larger at this time. Perhaps it will take another year or two for them to establish.

I am a first-time homeowner and gardener and I was so excited when I got the pre-ordered email of the Alauna Clair-Obscur Dahlias for Christmas last year. I could hardly wait for my tubers to arrive in the mail! They were so worth the wait. I can not tell you how thrilled I have been with the blooms that have been gracing my front garden! They are deep purple in the center with white tips and they make quite a statement. They have been easy to grow (I have just followed the tips on Longfield Gardens' website) and I would highly recommend them! Thank you Longfield Gardens for helping me get such a good start into gardening!
