Dahlias are blooming in the Sequim Botanical Garden in Carrie Blake Community Park photography by Leslie A. Wright. More than 30 varieties, grown from tubers, are blooming this month and continuing into October.
The plant, native to Mexico, has been hybridized over centuries. The blooms come in various sizes, shapes, and colors. There are sizes of blooms from 1 inch to 10 inches in diameter, but you will never see a blue dahlia.
A reminder that the flowers in the garden are for everyone, please do not pick or cut the flowers. The Sequim Botanical Garden is not a cutting garden, it is an educational display for everyone to enjoy.
