Shiloh Noelle Dahlia: An Amazing Surprise in the Dahlia Patch

I have always been hesitant to purchase white dahlias. For whatever reason, the bugs always seem to flock to and destroy the beautiful blooms. Though I wasn’t sure if I would like the look of Shiloh Noelle dahlia in my yard, I was pleasantly surprised.

Describing the color of Shiloh Noelle dahlia is a little difficult. Though it is frequently described as a white dahlia, the ones in my garden are actually a really beautiful shade of white and soft lavender. As you can see in the photo above, the lavender color often becomes much more prominent towards the center.

As the flowers first open, the form is very compact. It isn’t until it is allowed to fully mature that the massive flowers display their full petals.

Though I did have some issues with bugs on my Shiloh Noelle dahlia, they were generally pest free. This huge flower is definitely one which I would like to keep in the garden for years to come. Have you ever grown Shiloh Noelle dahlia before? I’d love to hear all about it in the comments below! Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. Beautiful! I have thoroughly enjoyed viewing all of your dahlia varieties. Will you be giving information on how you will be storing them this winter? This will be my first time over-wintering tubers.

  2. These are beautiful! I only had red dahlias (and only 2 years, they died out the 3rd year).
    It’s been ages since I had a chance to visit your blog. Catching up now!

  3. I can not leave a comment on videos but I think I can here. Loved your e-book and info on winter sowing. I will be watching video now. Watch all the time. Good work.
