The Genus Dahlia is native of Mesoamerica, principally of the high plains of Mexico, some species can be found in Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, El Salvador & Costa Rica as well as parts of South America. The Aztecs called the plant acocoxóchitl, believed to derive from "plant with tube-like stems". Dahlias are woven into the mythology of the Aztecs who cultivated the many varieties, used some for medicine, others for food (the rhizome) and of course, in their fantastic ceremonies. Dahlias are the national flower of Mexico.
