Introduction

This blog will keep you informed of the activities of the Greater Kansas City Dahlia Society.

The Dahlia Society holds an annual root/tuber sale, annual competition/show, regular meetings, and a December luncheon.  It's the perfect place to learn how to grow dahlias, share plant information with seasoned growers, and share in the camaraderie of those who enjoy growing flowers.
