Meeting “DAHLIA”

September 24, 2019

Dahlia 2This is my first time to see Dahlia flowers up close as I just bought one today. It actually took me a lot of time before finally settling to buy this pot of awesome flowering plant.

Surprisingly, when I searched online to know something about it, the first thing that I read was that 2019 is the Year of the Dahlia!! Isn’t that amazing?

Dahlia

The Wonder of Nature

“Dahlia is a genus of tuberous plants that are members of the Asteraceae family; related species include the sunflower, daisy, chrysanthemum, and zinnia. They grow from small, brown, biennial tubers planted in the spring…. dahlia flowers can range in size from petite 2-inch lollipop-style pompoms to giant 15-inch “dinner plate” blooms. Most varieties grow 4 to 5 feet tall.” (Excerpts from “Growing Dahlias” at https://www.almanac.com/plant/dahlias)
