Where has American Dawn been all my life? Last year was my first year growing dahlias, just three varieties. I have expanded that to about 20+ this year. American Dawn will be a keeper. The color is stunning and the flowers are just the right size. I thought dinner plates were where its at, but American Dawn is a much more manageable dahlia. No flopping over. Tall Sturdy Stems. And, oh! Did I mention the color? I did. It really is gorgeous!
This is an amazingly beautiful dahlia. It's been strong from the get go and is a sturdy plant with many large blooms. I wasn't sure how the colors would be in person and the combo is kinda strange but gorgeous! Really, really glad I bought this one!
Wow! What a gorgeous flower. The strongest, thickest dahlia stems I have ever grown. The color of this dahlia is gorgeous. For me in Northeast Mississippi it is deep pink with purple center. This was my first time ordering from Longfield Gardens and I was really worried about the quality. The tubers were fresh and in great condition & packed very well. Everyone grew well and bloomed true to what I ordered. I've ordered from 2 other Dutch suppliers and I got mislabeled tubers. Not a good thing when they finally bloom and you realize the suppliers mistake. I am working on another order for Spring 2018. Well done Longfield Gardens.
I am SO pleased with my Dahlias American Dawn. The pricing was so reasonable I actually expected sub-par plants to come from my tubers, but they have started to produce big, beautiful and healthy cutting flowers. Because of the quality of these late summer flowers I am working on a spring bulbs order!
American Dawn is a very sturdy Dahlia, with a different shaped leaf than most Dahlias have. The leaves are slightly lighter green, too. The flowers are a wonderful combination of Apricot-pink with purple plum center as the flower begins to open. The purple flower stems are incredibly long and strong. I have never seen thicker flower stems on a Dahlia. At the end of July my American Dawn Dahlias are almost three feet tall and more than two feet wide. They are very strong plants and may not need staking. Both are beautiful Dahlias and I will definitely purchase them again.
Dahlias can't get enough! mine have not started to bloom as i am in Michigan but so far so good.
