Dahlia Society of Tennessee
If you love to grow flowers than you will love to grow
Dahlias. There are 19 different forms and 10 different
sizes, and their dazzling colors and  amazing blooms  
until frost takes them away  and until your next year
blooms begin.  Come join us and learn how to grow
these amazing flowers.
Founded for the purpose of stimulating interest,
disseminating information and promoting the culture and
development of the dahlia.

The umbrella goal of the Tennessee Dahlia Society is to
recruit, equip and train its members to be future leaders
of the Tennessee Dahlia Society, thus assuring the
society will prosper well in the future.
We are located in the great city of Chattanooga with members in the city and
in many of the surrounding towns. We also have members that live in
Georgia and Alabama.

Monthly meetings are held on the third Tuesday of every month, except
