Late summer bouquets using Dinner Plate Dahlias

Yellow 10" Kelvin Floodlight and white 8" Fleurel Dinner Plate Dahlias paired with bright blue delphinium in a blue vase makes a nice late summer display.  Cut blooms at dusk or early morning when centers are still tight. The stem ends can be seared with a match or, some recommend crushing them with a hammer to extend their vase life. Plunge immediately in water with a floral preservative and keep out of bright sunlight or drafts.
