Dahlias are natives of the mountainous regions of Mexico and Guatemala and were originally grown by the Aztecs. Spanish explorers and botanists wrote about the intriguing plants and the first tubers arrived in Spain in 1789. Easy to grow and colorful, Dahlias quickly became popular across Europe. The Victorians believed the flowers symbolized elegance, strength and commitment. There are 42 species of dahlias featuring a variety of flower forms. The "dinner-plate" dahlia blooms are often over 12" in diameter.
