The dahlia is named after Swedish 18th-century botanist Anders Dahl.4 In German the dahlia was known during most of the 19th century as Georgia, being named after the naturalist Johann Gottlieb Georgi of St. Petersburg, Russia.

There are at least 36 species of dahlia.

Dahlia hybrids are commonly grown as garden plants.

The Aztecs gathered and cultivated the dahlia for food, ceremonies, as well as decorative purposes,3 and the long woody stem of one variety was used for small pipes.

Dahlias are used as food plants by the larvae of some Lepidoptera species including Angle Shades, Common Swift, Ghost Moth andLarge Yellow Underwing.
