With over 40 varieties and endless hybrids available, dahlias are insanely versatile. There are countless colors (except blue), shapes, and sizes.
Like peonies, dahlias have differing seasonal availability according to their species, so if you’re set on having dahlias in a certain color, chat with a florist before picking a date for your event to secure the best shot at getting just what you want. (Nothing is guaranteed–we’re dealing with mother nature here).
Dahlias are very thirsty and very fragile. While they’re absolutely stunning, they can be pretty emotional. The petals will bruise if not carefully handled, they’ll wilt very quickly if left out of water, and they do not enjoy the heat (honestly, same). Your florist can help you decide whether these touchy blooms are a good fit for your event based on factors like whether it’s inside or outside and the duration of the event.
