Dahlias has always been one of my favourite flowers for many reasons. As with fashion and interiors, trends often repeat itself and so it is the same with flowers. It seems like the dahlia has made a come-back in the last few years, no doubt, thanks to the vintage look that has been so popular in interiors. Here’s a few of the dahlias that I have been growing in my garden.
Their colours are so vibrant, ranging from pure white shading to yellow, orange, pinks, purple not forgetting the dark red and almost black ones. With varied styles like round pom-pom ones that get fuller and rounder as they open, to the more flat ones with narrow pointy leaves, or the colour shading of the dipped-in-dye-look and then also the elegant flat leaved anemone style ones, I adore them all.
A simple display of single stems in coloured champagne flutes make a striking display on my side table.
The same dahlias I then also cut very short and put them in a vintage turquoise milk glass urn, I just had to see what the turquoise and pink combo looks like.
