Banks, 58, has been selling fresh-cut dahlias out of her back yard for some 12 years now. It's home to more than 100 blooming dahlia bushes in vibrant purples, pinks, yellows, whites—any color you can think of—and the blooms are cut to your choice right then and there by Banks herself. She displays her colorful flowers in Newport Beach's Kéan Coffee every week during dahlia season (summer through fall), and the blooms come in all shapes and sizes—some are even larger than your face. If you don't hurry, you'll have to wait, though: Her fresh-cut dahlias are only available from June through October. Blooms range from $2 to $7 each, depending on size.
