Many thanks to everyone who supported the tuber sales held by The Greater Philadelphia Dahlia Society. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about growing your tubers! Come to Longwood Gardens by 9 am Saturday morning with some blooms to show! We will help you enter your harvest.

All are welcome to join our dahlia society; our membership fee is very reasonable and entitles you to the quarterly newsletter and our four annual meetings.

Details and the membership form are available under the About tab, then GPDS membership, above.


The Greater Philadelphia Dahlia Society

The Greater Philadelphia Dahlia Society was founded in 1948 for the purpose of promoting the dahlia in its many forms and varieties. An annual Dahlia Show is held in September. Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, is kind enough to allow us to use their beautiful facility as a backdrop for the fruits of our labor. Anyone interested in growing dahlias is invited to participate in the Society.
