  Dahlias are popular garden flowers originally from Mexico and Central America.  In these warmer climates, they regrow on their own each year, but in cooler regions, they are replanted annually.

Dahlias are part of the same family as sunflowers, daisies, chrysanthemums, and zinnias, and are backyard favorites across the United States.  Dahlia plants produce flowers from two inches across all the way up to one foot.  The blooms do not have a strong scent, and attract pollinators such as bees and butterflies with their bright colors.  Dahlias come in red, yellow, white, orange, yellow, purple, and many shades in between.  There are even varieties with more than one color per flower.  These plants can grow to be taller than six feet, though most species tend to be around three feet in height.

Dahlias like lots of sunlight and well-draining, moist soil.  It is also important to keep an eye on these plants once they flower in order to remove spent blooms.  This helps the plant put energy into the healthy flowers and keeps your garden looking nice.

If you're looking to add lots of color to your garden, dahlias are one of the best choices.  Their blooms are sturdy, they are easy to plant, and since they attract pollinators, they'll help keep the rest of your garden beautiful, too.
