Dahlia As Cut Flowers
The Dahlia As A Cut Flower
Dahlias are big, bold flowers with long, sturdy stems that make them perfect for vases. Whether dahlias are gift bouquets or blooms grown in your garden, the showy flowers are sure to light up a room. Dahlias have a relatively short vase life compared to most flowers; however, with proper care, the flowers put on a vibrant show for up to five days.
Dahlias brought home from the flower or farmer’s market should get dropped in water as soon as possible. In order to maximize their relatively short 3 to 4 days vase life, warm or hot tap water is ideal. Dropping them in a vase of very hot water (NOT boiling) and letting it cool to room temperature can extend their vase life by 2 to 3 days. Dahlias will hydrate better in warm water.
The vase life of Dahlias varies greatly by species and cultivar. Tighter, compact varieties last longer than the large and showy ‘Cafe au Lait’ and other dinner plate varieties, so named because they’re as big as a dinner plate. As a rule of thumb, the larger and fancier the petals, the shorter the vase life.
Dahlia lasts a little longer when all the weight of the bloom is supported with other blooms. Even if they’re piled on one another, sometimes these pretty girls need a little help.
LET’S GET CLEAR
For the best vase life, re-cut the stems ½ - 1 inch and change the water in the vase every other day (cool or room temperature water is fine). Dahlias can dirty up water pretty quickly, so a cut and change of water will keep bacteria from forming and clogging up the stems. Remove withered or discolored petals from individual blooms daily. Wash your vase thoroughly every time you use it for a new bouquet.
Place the bouquet in a cool room, avoid near warm appliances, heating vents, sunny window, out of direct sunlight and drafts.
Knowing that flowers are a perishable natural product and that floral arrangements and floral gifts are handmade, we pre-treat our arrangements with Floralife hydration and treatment solutions. We make every effort to fortify our floral products and ensure the quality, accuracy and beauty of our work. Dahlias do require more care than other flower types and they do not have the long vase life of some other flowers even when properly cared for.
Enjoy your dahlias!!
