Plant Families / Dahlias
The rich variety of their flower colors, shapes and sizes added to their extensive blooming season, have turned dahlias into a popular addition to our landscapes. There are thousands of varieties of dahlias (!!!) and they are all classified by the shape, size and color of their flowers. Flowers can be as small as 2 inches in diameter or up to one foot. They offer an impressive range of colors, can be single-flowering or double flowering and all look gorgeous. Give them some sun and well-drained soils and they will grow nicely!
