About Yankee Dahlia Society

Misty and Carol, founders of Yankee Dahlia Society

Yankee Dahlia Society was established in 2021. Co-Founders and Co-Presidents Misty and Carol are 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.

We are a vibrant dahlia club with wonderful members who love growing dahlias. Whether you are a new dahlia grower or have years of experience we would love to get to know you. Join the club and be part of the fun!
