‘WOW’ flower presentation at ICC, Feb. 4Published 9:52pm Thursday, January 24, 2013
The Foothills Association of Master Gardeners is sponsoring a very special gardening program on Monday, February 4th at 1:30 at Isothermal Community College in Columbus.
Open to the public, Carolinas Dahlia Society member Brian Killingsworth will present a power point presentation about dahlias, often referred to as the “WOW” flower.
Included will be information about the interesting history of the plant as well as cultivation needs and requirements.
Killingsworth describes his interest in dahlias as a life-long habit since he was first introduced to the flower while in the service in Germany.
This spectacular bloom has many shapes and forms from basketball size to golf ball size and is available in a huge array of colors.
He grew dahlias commercially in Georgia before moving to our area.
A brief meeting for members of the Foothills Association of Master Gardeners will follow the program.
