Dahlias

Dahlias are the queen of all flowers in my opinion.  They start trickling in during the heat of July, and are fully in bloom pumping out stem after stem by September.  They come in so many shapes in sizes, some growing as large as a dinner plate – which some are so called “Dinner-plate Dahlias”.  Here on our farm we try to grow a few in each color way in multiple forms to round out our late summer and fall bouquets.  Dahlias in all their forms are quite amazing and a flower that I have happen to have a long history with.

Pictured below are my great-grandparents on my mother’s side. My Great-grandfather, Rolla Zufall, was a Dahlia enthusiast, even successfully hybridizing several Dahlia’s between 1967 and 1980. Below he and my great-grandmother who is dressed to the nines with her dahlia broach and earrings are pictured at one of the many dahlia shows he attended. My Aunt Linda is below in his patch of dahlias, literally outsized by his dinner plate blooms. The last picture is my mother holding her grandaddy’s bloom. Although his Dahlia hybrids have been lost over the years after his death (as you have to keep growing them year after year to keep them alive and well), we will never cease to grow these here on our Urban Farm.
