Dahlia - Babylon Bronze

Dahlia - Babylon Bronze

Few dahlia varieties surpass the renowned Babylon Bronze, which has taken the entire floral world by storm with its large and graceful flowers. In its orange and copper attire, complemented by dark foliage, this variety has quickly become an established favorite.

Babylon Bronze’s flowers measure approximately 20-30 cm in diameter, and unlike many other dinner-plate dahlias, this floral prima donna gazes upward, making it a fantastic choice for cut flowers. It’s a popular variety in the world of floristry not only for its astonishing appearance but also for its remarkable qualities. The stems are unusually long and robust, making them highly durable in bouquets. The fact that this variety lasts exceptionally long in a vase is also a significant advantage!

A tall dahlia, it also looks incredibly beautiful as a background plant when planted alongside slightly shorter dahlia varieties or summer flowers.

This is a definite favorite of Floreas’ garden expert, Johanna Damm. In her garden, it can always be found in several places, both in flower beds and in pots at the entrance. It blooms abundantly and luxuriantly until the first frost!

    All of our dahlia tubers are size I, what does that mean?

    Something that is very close to our hearts is the quality of our products, and our dahlia tubers are no exception. Dahlia tubers are classified into two size groups, Class I and II. For a Dahlia tuber to be classified as size I, the tuber must weigh more than 80 grams, and for size II, it is over 40 grams. Does the size of the tuber matter to the size of the Dahlia plant? Here the answer is both yes and no.
