The dahlia originates from the warm regions of Mexico, Central America and Columbia. The plant was later baptised dahlia in honor of the Swedish botanist, Andreas Dahl, student of the famous Carl Linnaeus, known as the “father of modern taxonomy” after formalizing the naming of plants. It was introduced in France in 1802. Used for dyeing, the darker colors have always given the best results.
