Dreaming of Dahlias
With each month of flowering comes another favorite. The dahlia is definitely one we wait for on the farm. It's colors and shapes cannot be matched and while the sunflower is a stunner, by the time the dahlia begins blooming, we have already had about a month of sunflowers and I am so excited to see these beauties every season.
The dahlia begins from a tuber, which is much different than all of our other annuals we grow from a seed. Tubers typically range from $5-$30 a piece depending on where you purchase them and each tuber will produce a large plant that will give you one kind of flower. To get a variety you need to plant a variety of tubers.
There are so many different kinds of dahlias: poms, dinner plates, decorative, waterlily, to just name a few. They come in miniature sizes of 1" and can be as big as 12". The variety of color combinations is endless and people are constantly breeding new varieties.
While growing these flowers can be intimidating, it is also very rewarding and a tad addicting. Don't say I didn't warn you!!!
To learn more about this amazing flower, how to grow it and to make your own dahlia arrangement, join us for our Dreaming of Dahlias event. Here we take a closer look at this exceptional flower.
