Dahlias come in all shapes, sizes and colors. In fact, sometimes they look like a different flower altogether. I find that the pom pom varieties last the longest in the vase and don’t get eaten by insects as quickly as the multi petalled dinner plate varieties. But, of course, they all have their place in the garden and vase!
Dahlias play very well with other flowers and greens in the vase. They are more than happy to take center stage but also work well as background players!
