It's time for our annual fundraiser and a great opportunity to add some new dahlia varieties to your collection. Some of our offerings are prize-winning varieties from previous years' dahlia shows!


Here is a current list of the varieties that will be for sale this year. 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 9. All plants will be $9.

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.
