About Dahlia. In Europe, the flower was named after the scientist Anders Dahl. In our country, the name of this flower is Georgina. It was named after the scientist Johann Gottlieb Georgi, who lived and worked in Russia in the 18th century.
Look at my beauties Georgina or Dahlia.

Many people thing they are old-fashioned, but I don't thing so.

@Elena I would say Lupin is old fashioned, but dahlias have so many guises, shapes and colour variations that I don't think people mind the idea that some might think it old fashioned.

The last one is a pure STUNNER! Thank you for sharing.. Bliss!

Lovely Elena
Dahlias for me were not welcome in my garden....too ostentatious, no subtlety.
However, they have grown on me now....I have about 15 maybe more different varieties incl Twyings After Eight, Yellow Honka, Clare de Lune, the Bishops (llandaff and York), Star Child and others.
They grow well and early down here in Cornwall and with heleniums and salvias give a long lasting colourful display well into late autumn.
Yep, started to appreciate dahlias a little more now (y)

I love them for their brightness and ostentatious. We see only gray color six months. We've got such a short summer. I planted a varieties of warm colors with gelenium as you say for autumn.

I love dahlias for their boldness. I had never had a dinner plate one until some company sent me a wrong one and it was a dinner plate. It was an eye opener and I really like it. I bought some more this year to add to my stock. Hopefully, I will post some here ...

I love grasses, foliage and subtle plants Elena but dahlias and heleniums add the razzmatazz to lift the garden. Wouldn't be without them now (y)

@Verdun You've taken the words out of my mouth. If I had a bigger garden, I would go for more grass. At the moment, I only want a stipa. Must seed them tomorrow. Full of allure when being swayed by breeze!

Dahlias are so pretty. I like how colorful they are! In fact I think they come in every color except blue. They can also get as big as a dinner plate!

Lovely photos @Elena:) Dahlia is also Mexico's National Flower. They grow wild here in some areas.
Dahlia is also the official flower of San Fancisco. There is no good reason for this. I think the Dahlia Society was just the first one out the gate with their proposal.
