If grown under optimal conditions, these dahlias can bloom from mid-summer through fall, and their flowers can last for several weeks.

When given proper care, Café Au Lait Dahlias can last up to two to three years in the ground. However, in colder climates, they may need to be lifted and stored during the winter months. To ensure the plant's longevity, it's crucial to provide it with adequate water, sunlight, and nutrients.
