2019 CATALOG
Website updated October 22, , 2018

The website is in the process of being updated. I hope to have it ready to start taking orders in early November. I'm not sure if all the varieties you see pictured here will be available as tubers. If not, most will be available as rooted cuttings.

If you "like" my facebook page - Cowlitz River Dahlias, you will be notified of the website opening.

  ZENPORT ZS104 GARDENING SCISSORS.     GARDENING SCISSORS -- Zenport ZS104. These are the scissors I've used to divide dahlia clumps with for at least 4 years. They feature 8" long tough carbon steel blades and soft grips for better grip and comfort. The smooth bypass cutting action makes quick work of separating your tubers. I also use them to cut flower stems and if I were a crafter I'd use them for many other things as well. Price includes first class shipping.
