About Yankee Dahlia Society

Misty and Carol, founders of Yankee Dahlia Society

Our Background

Hi, we’re Misty and Carol, two friends who met growing dahlias. So, when two friends who love dahlias want to make other new friends who also love dahlias, they start a club!

We had a vision of creating a fun space where people who love dahlias could gather and connect, in person and through social media, to learn, have fun, and enjoy growing dahlias together.
