“These bold, bushy flowers have a history as dramatic as their appearance. Conquistadors found the dahlia in the gardens of the Aztecs and caused a sensation when they brought the flower back to Europe. As the dahlia gained popularity, the pursuit of its potato like tubers was conducted with intrigue and deception — dahlia tubers were reportedly stolen even from the garden of the Empress Josephine!”
Dahlias are a bit of an obsession for me right now. They are gorgeous and romantic yet still remain playful. Dahlias can make a special addition to any floral arrangement., especially a Bridal bouquet!
