About the Dahlia
The Dahlia long had the image, of being a plant for grandpas and grandmas. In recent years, the vinage plant has become very hip. It’s no wonder, because they are beautiful flowers in an incredible number of varieties: from single-flowered white flowers to bulbous red velvety spheres with small, spoon-shaped petals. There are many special Dahlias with special names. Like Dahlia Café au Lait or Dahlia Crème de Cassis.
Dahlias bloom long and profusely and they come in endless variations of colors and shapes. They are ideal flowers for adding color to the garden at the end of summer until the first frost. They combine very well with flower bulbs. As a cut flower you can also bring them from the garden to your living room.
