Starting a new series of blogposts…yes of course, with stress on photographs. This time it is about the “Smile of Earth“; the Flowers!!
First of the series is Dahlia. It is a perennial plant from Compositae or Asteraceae family. With beautiful showy flowers, Dahlia is the attraction of many gardens.
Propagation in dahlia is through tubers. The basic species is Dahlia pinnata, though many hybrid varieties are available now.
Dahlia was declared the national flower of Mexico in 1963.
