Diane Szukovathy, co-owner of Jello Mold Farm in Mount Vernon, holds Audrey Grace dahlias (red) and Snoho Jojo dahlias (pink), Thursday, Aug. 30, 2012, at her farm. Szukovathy said dahlias have a short vase life -- about six day compared to roses, which can last about three weeks -- and do not do well traveling in trucks or planes without water. "We sell as fresh as possible," Szukovathy said. "That's our niche."
