This one Mema purchased as cut flowers and when she put them in a large arrangement on the dining room table, they looked so good with the colors in the room she called the farm and had them add it onto the order for next year.
|There are over 40 acres and more then 350 different varieties of dahlias|
The Dahlias at Menagerie Manor are grown in the picking garden and are all chosen with the idea that they will be used in Mema's beautiful floral arrangements. So size is important, the large ten inch flowers are never used. I have a few of those as garden fillers in the main gardens but they never make it indoors. Mema prefers long stemmed 4 to 6 inch blooms.
