For a dahlia fanatic like me, owning a dahlia farm would be an absolute dream.
Yes, our dahlias look fantastic in the borders, beds and containers in our gardens. But look at them ‘en masse’ in the images on this post – sheer poetry!
Dahlia farms typically offer fresh flowers (dahlias and other cut flowers) and dahlia tubers for sale.
Many of them also have other offerings, such as workshops and courses. These are usually related to dahlias and flower arrangement, but some farms offer other creative opportunities, for example photography courses.
Perhaps best of all, many dahlia farms are open for visits so that you can view the beautiful ranks of dahlias flowering in the summer months.
In this article, I’ve done my best to put together a list of dahlia farms across the the USA classified by state.
These are the places where you can discover some real dahlia treasures. What is more, if you can’t visit them in person, many have online offerings of dahlia plants and flowers.
