Dahlias have a long history of use in horticulture, earning a well-deserved reputation as consistent bloomers. Enhancing gardens and adorning arrangements as cut flowers, the Dahlia has been acclaimed “Queen of the Autumn Garden” by its admirers. dahlias are closely related to chrysanthemums, daisies, marigolds, zinnias, and dandelions. Few genera can match the diversity dahlias exhibit. There are at least 27 species and literally thousands of cultivars developed through hybridization. Heights range from several inches to over 20 feet for some wild species. Flowers come in almost every color imaginable and can be thumbnail size to 12 inches across, blooming from mid-summer until a frost in our area. Flower shapes are also quite diverse, ranging from marigold-like to sunflower-like. The American Dahlia Society recognizes 12 groups of cultivars, distinguished primary by their flowers.
