It seems like everywhere we look right now we're seeing our new favorite flower, the dahlia! From the farmer's market, to our trip to Meadowburn farm, and even the New York Flower Market, dahlias are really having their moment right now! If you're planning a wedding, looking to add some flora to your bike, or just looking for some flowers for your desk, these colorful blooms are a great choice right now!

If you've noticed in some of our recent photos, we've been incorporating these lovely blooms into as many photos as possible! Our love affair with this flower started this summer, so we've really taken as many opportunities to share them as possible. The dahlia is in the same family of flowers as others we love like the zinnia, so they've been right at home with the other flowers we usually show off.

Dahlias are a beautiful flower to grow and can grow to be close to six feet tall. If you're lucky enough to have a garden, dahlia seeds and bulbs are available for you  to plant. On our recent trip to Meadowburn farm, we learned all about their heirloom varietals of dahlia and that they sell the bulbs, too! They can be tricky to keep as a cut flower though, so if you bring them inside, make sure to keep them hydrated with flower food and out of direct light.

Dahlias are in season from summer until early fall, so If  you'd like show off some of these colorful blooms, you're still in luck! They're still in season, and you can find them now at your local farmer's market (if you're in North America) or your local florist.

Happy planting!
