Click HERE for a list of varieties that will be offered at the sale. Additional varieties not listed may also be offered. Some varieties will be in very limited supply and will go quickly. Plants that are unsold at the end of the Chicago Botanic Garden sale will be offered at an online sale on May 7. All plants will be $9. We accept cash, check, or credit card.

This is a great event to invite family and friends who are also interested in growing dahlias. Look for more information by email throughout April. If you are not a CSDS member, sign up to get updates about the sale below. To become a member, JOIN HERE.
