dahlia society of australia South Australian Dahlia Society


Dahlia Society of South Australia


Most of our members are avid dahlia growers and sometimes breeders of new dahlia cultivars.  Our member’s exhibit flowers at Horticultural Shows and some also make blooms available for sale.


One of our other important activities in promoting the dahlia is through voluntary work in supporting the staff to maintain a dahlia bed in the Adelaide Botanic Gardens.  We have inherited a wonderful gene pool for this spectacular flower and are keen to preserve and improve the cultivars that have been passed on to us.


Our Meeting times

Meetings are held 3 times per year at a member’s home; please contact the Secretary for more details.
