If such a thing existed as a flower of the year, then for 2012 it would have been the cafe au lait dahlia. It’s of the dinner plate variety which means it’s big, really big. And the color which can range from pale peachy tan to quite pink is always romantic and just wants to be featured at your wedding. After a long break, since they are one flower really not available most of the year, the cafe au lait is back and as gorgeous as ever.
We buy most of our cafe au laits from local farm Figone Ranch. From the LA area, Santa Clarita also sells beautiful specimens.
