All about the Dahlia

From spider to pompon, from brilliant white to deep dark red: Dahlia is a real seasonal favourite. Let this diva shine among richly studded berry branches or incorporate them into late summer picking bouquets. Dahlia is a fantastic pick flower. Whoever has it in the garden knows that you can keep picking until well into autumn. And as a florist you can't get bored of it either: there are so many colours and shapes that you can keep varying them.

The history of the Dahlia is a fascinating one.

The history of the Dahlia goes way back; it has been grown in the Netherlands since 1810. The plant is named after Swedish botanist Andreas Dahl (a student of Linnaeus).

On Instagram, there is a veritable Dahliamania going on. Hook up to it! Create a flatlay or floral mandala with Dahlias. Combine individual flowers and petals to create a colourful whole. Add berries and hips, too, if necessary. Post the end result on Instagram or Facebook with #dahliamania. Getting the hang of it? Organise a flatlay or mandala-making workshop with late summer and autumn flowers. Dahlias are available almost year-round, but traditionally, late summer is the Dahlia season. By highlighting Dahlias again as a true seasonal product, you create a sense of euphoria: they are in abundance again! Create an overflowing flower display with Dahlias in all possible varieties and thereby invite your customers to buy richly filled late summer bouquets.
