Zionsville Cultural District Dahlia Giveaway
The Zionsville Cultural District is pleased to announce its second annual Dahlia tuber giveaway.  Thanks to the generosity of the Village Garden Club, dahlias will be made available as long as supplies last, starting at 9:00am on Saturday, June 6th.  Distribution will take place at Blooms by Dragonfly (176 S. Main St).  Begun in 2019, this initiative was created to bring attention to the town's horticultural history when it was known as "Dahlia City".  Two commercial nurseries were located in the Village, selling dahlias and other flowers to customers around the country.  One of the varieties created here was called, "Zion's Pride", which won it's breeder, Fred Gresh, a Gold Medal at the 1933 Chicago World's Fair.  The Zionsville Cultural District aims to encourage gardeners to grow dahlias as a way to beautify neighborhoods and highlight a significant segment of the town's history.  Recipients of the free tubers will be asked to bring their prized blooms back in the late summer, at a location yet to be determined, to share their form and beauty.
