Dahlias

Dahlias are one of the most popular garden flowers. Extremely versatile, the flowers can take on a great variety of different shapes, colors and sizes.

The dahlia was originally discovered by European adventurers in the 16th century in what was to become Mexico. In Europe a Spanish monk named the flower in honor of  botanist Anders Dahl.

Dahlias are in great demand for weddings and events during the summer and fall.
