Named after the Swedish botanist, Dr Anders Dahl, they’re in the family Asteraceae, which is part of the daisy family. These wonderful flowers originated in the mountain ranges of Mexico, Guatemala and Columbia, before becoming popular throughout the world.
The dahlia was declared the national flower of Mexico in 1963.
There are hundreds, if not thousands, of different cultivars and hybrids of dahlias. There are about 30 species of Dahlia. This tuberous-rooted perennial plant is characterised by the different flower types. Dahlias come in many lovely shades including one that’s nearly black, and there are bi-colour ones as well.
