Dreaming of dahlias

Fire Cat Farm —Sadie Dix

According to the American Dahlia Society, dahlias are the longest-blooming flower in cultivation.  Dahlia is a bushy, tuberous, herbaceous perennial plant native to Mexico and Central America.

In the past decade, dahlias have come into their own on the Vineyard. Perhaps it’s the hardy diversity, with so many different flowering options, up to 42 species, growing up to 8 feet tall and in every color, shape, and size you can imagine. Photographer Sadie Dix captured these dahlias at Tea Lane Farm and Fire Cat Farm.
