Veca Lucia dahlia photographed in San Francisco by Glenn Franco Simmons, The Flower Photographer of San Francisco.Dahlia, Veca LuciaThis Veca Lucia photos is one of the first ones I took with my new professional camera gear and the first one I edited. Because of different cameras, filters, lenses and available light, I'm not sure if this is officially a Veca Lucia, so if you can help identify it, please email me. Thank you. “The Veca Lucia dahlia is a decorative flower that was hybridized by Paradise and registered in 1997,” according to Google AI. “The flowers are medium-sized, measuring 6 to 8 inches in diameter.  They are a light blend of lavender and white with a picotee edge in dark.”

“Veca Lucia is a dahlia variety that was created by crossing two other varieties: Bishop of Llandaff and Mme. E.L. Vilmorin,” according to Google AI. “It was first introduced in 1997 by the breeder, Paradise. The flower has a light blend of lavender and white with a picotee edge in dark purple. It blooms from mid-summer to fall and can grow up to 3 feet tall. Veca Lucia is a popular choice for cut flowers and is also well-suited for container gardening. It is a relatively easy dahlia to grow and does best in full sun and well-drained soil.”
