Taken a few weeks ago of these lovely flowers growing by the roadside, somebody did tell me once an old lady planted them many years ago, I have left the wee critters in

Dahlias were originally grown as a food crop for their edible tubers

Dahlias belong to the Asteraceae (Aster) family along with daisies and sunflowers

Dahlias range from dwarf plants ideal for bedding to giants such as Dahlia imperialis found growing in the wild from Guatemala to Colombia where it can grow upwards of 6m tall

When given as a gift, the dahlia flower expresses sentiments of dignity and elegance. It is also the symbol of a commitment and bond that lasts forever
