Guarantee covers the current seasons orders, and we are not responsible for customer negligence, weather conditions, rodent damage, winter storage, or performance of plants in following seasons. Each tuber will produce a full size plant. All dahlias should emerge from the soil within 3-5 weeks after planting. For any dahlia that fails to emerge after 5 weeks, please dig it up and contact us immediately for further instructions, no later than August 1st of the same growing season. Any other concerns regarding your growing dahlias must be reported by October 1st of the same growing season. If you start your dahlias early or grow in containers we do not recommend using any type of soil with pre-added fertilizers or compost.

NO CASH REFUNDS.

We offer single division dahlia tubers. All of our tubers come with a 100% guarantee to grow beautifully for you. Each price is based on the amount of stock available and is for 1 tuber.

Grown in the USA!
All of our tubers that we offer have been grown at our farm located in Canby, Oregon, USA. We are our very own supplier, unlike many companies in this industry. Buy USA grown dahlias first!

Pot roots vs. Single divisions
A single division tuber (99% of what we offer and what are planted each year in our fields) is a tuber that has been field grown to maturity divided, stored, and then packed with love and shipped out to you. A pot root is a dahlia cutting that has been forced in a greenhouse, partially grown and then dug up and sold. US growers/domestic grown dahlias will mainly be single division. Imported dahlias will be pot roots. Both will produce and grow beautifully for you. There should be no difference in growing one over the other.

Each dahlia tuber that is sent out is hand stamped with its name directly on it. Tubers may arrive packed together in the same bag so please be sure to open your bag and inspect your dahlia tubers carefully. 

We begin shipping dahlia tubers March 1st through the first full week of June each season. No orders shipped prior to March 1st.

Low Growing and dwarf dahlias will take approx. 75 from planting to bloom time. All others will be blooming approx. 90 days after planting. Once they begin to bloom they will continue to bloom through frost.

Please let us know when placing your order if something is unavailable would you prefer a refund or substitution?

WHAT WILL MY TUBERS LOOK LIKE? WHAT AM I PURCHASING?Swan Island Dahlias has a unique way of labeling the tubers. You will find the variety name stamped on each individual tuber you receive, as see in the photo. Your tubers will be packaged in the same bag, and you will be able to identify each tuber with the name on it. Some tubers will show sprouted eyes and others may have dormant eyes when you receive them. All tubers are guaranteed to grow and produce beautiful flowers.
