The Zionsville Cultural District announces its second annual Dahlia Exhibition, to be held from 9AM to Noon on Saturday, September 19th, at PALETTE: Community Art Center, 295 S. Main St., Zionsville. All gardeners are invited to bring along their prized Dahlia blooms to be displayed with dozens of others. Thanks to a grant from the Zionsville Village Garden Club and the generosity of Dahlia expert, Alan Strader, over 100 tubers and plants were distributed for free to those wishing to give Dahlia growing a try.
The exhibition is part of the organization’s Dahlia City Initiative which aims to bring to light the town’s former history as “Dahlia City”, when two nurseries in the village produced Dahlia tubers mailed to gardeners around the country. Dahlias were in fashion during the 1920’s to 1940’s, with many local residents filling their yards with these showy blooms. The Zionsville Cultural District aims to encourage gardeners to grow dahlias as a way to beautify neighborhoods and highlight a significant segment of the town’s history.
All are welcome to participate. Educational information will be available on growing and overwintering Dahlias. Everyone is urged to bring a bud vase or bottle in which to display their blooms, and to wear masks.
For more information, please contact Mark Zelonis at (317) 258-2071, or visit the ZCD website atwww.zvillecd.org .
