Multicolored Dahlias

Selective breeding and hybridizing dahlias is one of the favorite experiments of Dahlia growers. Successful experiments have produced a largest array of forms, colors, sizes and patterns. 20th century saw around 50,000 varieties developed and registered in 570 individual classes!

Lal Bagh botanical garden of Bangalore too has a wide variety of Dahlia. More new forms, colors, and sizes are being added. The sections of the flower display with Dahlias keep both bees and photographers busy.
