"Next time you are lucky enough to be someone's houseguest, consider arriving with a bouquet of either one of the Little Book of Flowers."--The New York Times

Dahlias are the showboats of the flower world--colorful, flamboyant, and spectacular. They're also one of the most satisfying flowers to grow, with a long season, plentiful blooms, and are adaptable to most climates with proper care. They're very easy to propagate, and can be hybridized. There are numerous dahlia flower forms and more than 50,000 recognized cultivars!
This charming little hardcover book includes:
  • 60+ full-color botanical illustrations
  • basic botany and history
  • everything you need to know to grow gorgeous blooms in the garden (including dividing tubers to propagate more flowers)
  • tips for creating beautiful arrangements and preserving flowers
  • quotes, lore, and notable gardens and growers
Like a bouquet of dahlias, this book is an affordable little luxury for gardeners and flower lovers--the perfect hostess gift or Mother's Day present. It's part of the collectible mini gift book series Little Book of Natural Wonders.
