2022 ADS Photo Contest, Class 4, 1st Place, Garden in Big Sur by Fran Heller

Thanks for your interest in the American Dahlia Society (ADS).  ADS was founded in 1915 and is comprised of over 70 independent local societies in the US and Canada. We are a non-profit organization founded for the purpose of stimulating interest in, disseminating information about, and promoting the culture and development of, the dahlia.

If you also love dahlias, please consider joining the ADS. You may join “at large” from this site, but for a more exciting experience, join ADS via a local society.

Find a society in your area here.  In a local society you will meet other dahlia enthusiasts, learn first-hand from local growers, and have a lot of fun!
