D for "Dahlia"

 
Common Name: Dahlia
Scientific Name: Dahlia 
My earliest memory of seeing a Dahlia flower is in my maternal grandmother's garden. Come winter and a variety of Dahlias will bloom along with other seasonal flowers in her beautiful garden. Over the years, Dahlias of myriad colours have found a place every year in our winter garden.
