Dahlias Dahlias

Dahlias are some of the showiest of all flowers. Dahlias originated in the central plateau and highlands of Mexico where even today, in August and September, the wild progenitors of this huge flower genus can be found blooming along highways, near cliffs, among boulders and on the slopes of the ancient volcanic mountains. The Aztecs cultivated the plant and had gardens filled with dahlias. In 1791, the plant was brought to Spain where Antonio Jose Cavanilles, a senior member of the staff of the Royal Botanic Garden in Madrid gave it the name, Dahlia, in honor of the Swedish botanist, Andreas Dahl, a pupil of Linnaeus. In the 1800’s, the plant’s popularity exploded throughout Europe and Great Britain and the flower returned to North America as a curiosity in the gardens of Americans. In the 1850’s, in Germany, the pompom dahlia was developed, and in the 1870’s in Holland, the cactus dahlia was created. For growing instructions, click here
