Dahlias have become a bride favorite for their unique design and personality! The biggest perk about these pretty petals is that they come in a wide range of colors — ranging from vibrant solids to soft ombre pastels.
A native to Mexico and belonging to the same floral family as sunflowers, chrysanthemums, daisies and zinnias, dahlias come in many vibrant hues and variations of sizes and shapes. The stem length is roughly 14″-16″ and the blooms can range in size from 1.5″-3″. They are usually available starting in late spring (May) and ending in the early fall (November), the biggest and best blooms are harvested mid-summer, while blooms tend to shrink in size toward the end of their season.
To keep them in their freshest state we suggest cutting the stems and removing the bottom leaves before placing them in water. They can give off a goo, so make sure you’re constantly refreshing the water! They also tend to have very thin stems and heavy blooms, so make sure you’re supporting the stems and blooms with a short bucket or vase to avoid any drooping or broken stems.
Pink Dahlias range from delicate blush tones to vibrant fuchsia shades.
