Dahlia Wholesale Guide

Dahlia is a bulbous plant native to Central America. Very easy to grow, it comes in a multitude of colors that will enhance flowerbeds or beds. There are many varieties whose final size ranges from 30 cm (for dwarf varieties) to 2 m in height.

Flower symbolism

Dahlia has a rich symbolism: the flower represents wealth and elegance, but also love and involvement. This is a perfect flower to express your love! For the Aztecs, the Dahlia was a religious symbol, in addition to food, the flower was used in different types of ceremonies.

Colors, shapes and availability

How many beautiful colors do you want to have? There are so many choices, from the magnificent Black Fox to Café Au Lait.

Every year there are more and more choices. Not only in color, but also in petal and flower-head shape. Now there are more than 1000 species, and we can divide them into single and double flowering. Beautiful pompom and ball dahlias, or the totally different (semi) cactus Dahlias.

This flower always amazes you! Normally an autumn flower, but luckily for us now available from March to September.

Flower care


The dahlia needs a lot of water to flourish: the soil must always remain cool. It is watered at least once a week (2 to 3 times during periods of extreme heat or heat waves). The best time to water is in the morning, and care is always taken not to wet the foliage, but to water at the foot of the plant.
