Dahlia Bridal Bouquets

Dahlia bridal bouquets - choose these beautiful round blooms from the middle of July through September and into October. The variety I love most are pompon or ball dahlias (over 3.5 inches across) - perfect round flowers with a honeycomb of lovely rolled petals in colors such as salmon, coral, copper, lavender, burgundy, strawberry pink and orange. At Fifty Flowers online, copper penny dahlias are now advertised at $199.99 for forty stems. About five dollars each. Or grow these flawless dahlia flowers yourself in window boxes, containers, on a balcony or patio. Give them well drained soil and plenty of sun, and you'll have breathtaking blooms right up until the first frost.
