The National Garden Bureau (NGB), the non-profit organization promoting gardening in North America on behalf of the horticulture industry and its members, has announced that they have selected the dahlia as the bulb crop of the year for 2019.   The NGB “Year of the” program chooses flowers and/or plants specifically for the North American market that are easy to grow, genetically diverse, and with a lot of new cultivars to showcase.  

Please see the ADS President’s Call to Action regarding this honor.
