From the darkest red or purple to shades of pink, orange, yellow, white, blends, variegated and even bi-colours, dahlias make a great addition to any gardening colour scheme. The plant grows from three to six feet, so you should plant it in the middle or rear of your flower bed. Taller dahlias make great accents and are effective visual screens because of their dense foliage.
In arrangements, dahlias can stand alone or mixed with other cut flowers. These flowers are a top choice for their long vase life. They are also well-loved and are used in bridal bouquets as they symbolise elegance, dignity, creativity, change, and inner strength.
