Kentlands Photowalk: Dahlia and Black-eyed Susan IMG 5003

Kentlands Photowalk: Dahlia and Black-eyed Susan IMG 5003

 

Dahlias are still blooming in our Kentlands home garden in Gaithersburg, Maryland 20878. We expect to be cutting flowers from these plants until the first frost in October.

Kentlands is a very walkable planned neo-traditional community and is one of the favorite areas for families being relocated to the Metro Area of Washington, DC. The Ride On bus system transports commuters to Metro, the train system that serves the area.

 

Subhash Sharma  This exquisite looking Dahlia comes from a small genus of only 42 species although a large number of hybrids have recently been added to enlarge this genus. As early as 1525 Spaniards had reported the finding of these plants growing in Mexico but their earliest known description is by Francisco Hernández, physician to Philip II, who was ordered to visit Mexico in 1570 to study the "natural products of that country".

Mr. Sharma is a Facebook friend from India. He now lives in Ireland and frequently comments on my photographs as I post them in Facebook.
