Dazzling Dahlias

If ever there was a flower that exemplifies variety, it is the dahlia. Dazzling red, orange, yellow, pink, purple and brilliant white, dahlia flowers also come in a dizzying array of shapes and sizes. They offer a veritable kaleidoscope of color and shape.

 

The dahlia also has a symbolic meaning, first derived in Victorian England. 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. The flower is still used today in gardens and flower arrangements to celebrate love and marriage.
