Dinner Plate Dahlias

As promised, we're back this week with a look at what some may call the "grande dame" of dahlias, the dinner plate dahlia!

Although it's a relatively recent variety, it's size commands attention and respect.Blooms can range from 8 to 14 inches in diameter.

Behold (placing children next to them seems to be a favorite way to show off size):

Dahlias are here!

It's that time of year again! If summer had a quintessential flower, I'd say it was the Dahlia .

Bursting with sunshine and vibrance, they come in a startling variety of colors to accomodate everyone's tastes. They also range in shape and size from bouncy pom pom to gargantuan dinner plate.My favorite way to send them lets their natural beauty shine through and be the focus- a blast of multicolored dahlias accented with fresh-scented geranium leaves.

Through the rest of the Summer we'll spotlight some of our favorite varietes right here. Order today while they are in their prime!
