Dahlia imperialis

from £5.00

UK delivery available from £4.95

 We have been offering plants of the tree dahlia on the nursery for some time but 2017 was the first year when we had tubers available for mail order customers. Stock sold quickly! This impressive species reaches heights in excess of 8' (2.5m) in a single season. To ensure flowering, it needs to be grown in a situation protected from frost, since blooms seldom appear before late October. For many gardeners (as for us here on our exposed Essex farm) it will be a splendid foliage plant, with just the rare indian summer offering the bonus of flowers.We were delighted to see a few flowers in 2017! This year, we also have a few tubers of white flowered imperialis for sale (under white section).

Our image comes by courtesy of Alan Gray of  East Ruston Old Vicarage at East Ruston, Norfolk, who grows his wonderful specimen under cover of a taller than average greenhouse.
