I began growing this variety hoping that the “Cafe Au Lait Rose” name would produce a dahlia with  classic “Cafe Au Lait” form but with a bit more pink or rose blush.   Yet, I was surprised (pleasantly) to find it to be a definite grape- purple.  After a little research I realized that the name is actually, Cafe Au Lait Rosé which definitely reflects the color of a dark rosé wine.  It’s been a great addition to the farm.
