Flower of the day, Nov 23, 2017 – Dahlia

Dahlia

Dahlia is a daisy like flower and is related to both daisy and sunflower.

It is the national flower of Mexico.

Dahlia is believed to get its name from an 18thcentury Swedish Botanist, Anders Dahl.

โ€œDahlโ€ sounds very much like โ€˜dalโ€™ in Swedish meaning โ€˜valleyโ€™. Thus it is also called โ€˜valley flowerโ€™ sometimes.

Dahlias serve decorative purposes in cakes, tarts, pastries, salads and in garnishing of deserts.

Dahlias with large flowers usually have only 4-5 flowers per plant.

Dahlias come in a variety of colors and many hybrids create many beautiful colors.

They are very susceptible to viral and bacterial infections.

The lotus was considered a sacred flower by ancient Egyptians and was used in burial rituals. This flower blooms in rivers and damp wetlands, but may lie dormant for years during times of drought, only to rise again with the return of water. Egyptians viewed it as a symbol of resurrection and eternal life. While others view the flower as a symbol of beauty, grace, purity and serenity.
