Why we love Dahlias

Did you know that Dahlias are from the same flower family as Sunflowers, Aster & Daisies? The family know as Asteraceae comes from the word meaning 'star' which describes the shape of these flowers, especially Dahlias.

There are more than 30 species of Dahlias, all with amazing and dramatic colour combinations. Originating from Central and South America they have become known as the National Flower of Mexico.

Dahlias are in season from November to May but are usually at their best around March & April however weather conditions vary this each year! This flower is one of our favourites because of its wide variety of colour combinations and its ability to work well in most arrangements and beautiful wedding bouquets!
