Not only is the Dahlia the birth flower of November due to its ability to bloom late into autumn, giving it the name 'Queen of the Autumn Garden', it is also a flower steeped in symbolism and meaning. Representing new beginnings, diversity, enduring kindness and commitment to good, this flower's meaning also changes depending on its colour and the Victorians saw the Dahlia as a symbol of devotion and love. The people of Mexico declared the garden dahlia its national flower in the 1960s, and people say the Aztec Emperor Montezuma favoured this flower above all others. Whatever the occasion, there is a Dahlia to suit it, and this crochet version will remain bright and beautiful for seasons to come.
