    Cornel Bronze is everything one could want for cutting flowers– beautiful soft glowy color, long/straight/strong stems, and they consistently hold for 7-9 days before beginning to wilt when others in the same vase usually begin to go at the edges on day 5. Definitely a favorite!

    Wow! What a productive beautiful dahlia. I wasn’t sure I would like the color of this one, but I love it! I’m not a fan of orange blooms, but my cornel bronze blooms are bronze, with a peach tone. The bronze color is perfect in fall arrangements, and the petals in each bloom are so intricately arranged. The plant itself is a strong grower and quick bloomer.. I’m surprised to say that this one has become one of my favorite dahlias.

Planting Tips for Dahlia Cornel Brons

Choosing a location

Dahlias will grow almost anywhere and are very forgiving, easy to grow garden plants. They will thrive in full sun but can tolerate some partial shade – the more sun, the bigger the flowers. Try to select a location that receives at least 6 hours of sun and is sheltered from the wind. Dahlias like to grow in well-drained and slightly acidic soil. If soil holds standing water for more than 24 hours after a heavy rain, it is normally a sign of poor drainage.



Dahlia Cornel Bronze can be planted safely after the last frost date. Watch the weather forecast closely to make sure conditions won’t be too cold or too wet. Plant your Dahlias outdoors when the air is consistently at least 50 degrees overnight. This generally means the soil in your garden is about that same temperature and that’s perfect.

Space your Cornel Bronze tubers so they have enough room for air circulation. Allow 16″-20″ between bulbs to avoid overcrowding. For best performance, plant taller varieties behind the shorter varieties so the shorter ones don’t get shaded out by the taller stalks, causing them to produce fewer and smaller blooms.



In cooler climates, Cornel Bronze Dahlias can be planted indoors, 4 to 6 weeks before the last frost date. Fill 1 or 2 gallon flowerpots or garden containers with slightly moist growing mix. Place the tuber(s) in the flowerpots or containers with the sprouts or eyes facing up, and cover with 2 inch of potting soil. Set the flower pots or containers in a warm place with good light and water sparingly.
