The dahlia is a beautiful flower and has such a range in size. I have seen some as small as a golf ball and as large as a dinner plate.

Here they are in white in a yummy bouquet I did at The Royal Palms this October. I mixed them with purple hydrangea, deep plum miniature calla lilies and rhinestone-studded stephanotis.

The dahlia is named after Swedish (go Swedes) 18th century botanist Anders Dahl. They are native to Mexico, Central America and Columbia and have 36 different species.

Thanks for checkin in on my Floral Friday.

Warm regards,
