For years dahlias have been dismissed for being garish, gaudy additions to gardens and arrangements, but when you find the right variety it's hard to think of a better garden plant or a more striking cut flower.

This book will help you unearth the history of the dahlia from its Aztec origins, as well as impart practical know-how. It's a guide to over 60 beautiful varieties to find out when they bloom, their size and, of course, what they'll look like. Including classics life Cafe au Lait, to lesser know varieties like Karma Choc and Moonfire, you'll discover a stunning range of specimens from pompoms to heavy-headed dinner plates, to those that resemble daisies, sea anemones and even fireworks!

With contemporary commentary on each bloom, easy-to-follow advice and glorious photography, this book will appeal to everyone who appreciates the forgotten glory of the dahlia.
