There’s probably no plant in the flower kingdom that gives the gardener a more spectacular reward than the dahlia.

Dahlias are a little like roses, or hostas, or even tomatoes. Most gardeners can’t grow just one. Once you grow a Dahlia, you want more. And like roses, hostas, and tomatoes, there are seemingly endless dahlias to keep a Dahlia gardener happy. Growing them is remarkably easy, which only adds to the frenzy. If you’ve never grown a Dahlia, it’s high time you did.
