This bouquet spells summer for me. All of its dahlias are heirlooms and are reliably available from only one source in commerce today: Old House Gardens in Ann Arbor, MI. These beauties include ‘Princess de Suede’, ‘Kaiser Wilhelm’, and ‘Old Gold’, and mix happily with the wonderful, genuine article, Lily ‘White Henryi’, also from Old House. If not for this bulb company’s determination to preserve historic flower bulbs, many antique plant treasures would no longer be found in the marketplace and might never find a home in your garden. Cooling things down just a bit in this bouquet is the classic of summertime, a bigleaf hydrangea.
