It wasn't too difficult to fall in love with Dahlias. While not hardy to Minnesota, it is quite easy to plant them in the late Spring, enjoy them in the Fall, then dig them up after the first frost and store them away till the next growing season. Granted, you most likely will lose a few, but it is well worth it to save your favorites.

An interesting fact about this flower is that the juice from the stems can be used to soothe the sting from nettles and Poison Ivy. It is also a favorite of hummingbirds.
