About

Dahlia imperialis is a huge dahlia from Mexico that can grow upto 5-8m tall in its native country. This is the largest of the dahlias and is a fantastic architectural plant for an exotic garden. The stems are thick and become woody at the base, they hold divided velvety dark green leaves and this clone also has a touch of purple on the leaves and stem. It rarely flowers in the UK unless we have a long, warm autumn, however if you are lucky enough to see them bloom the flowers appear in pink clusters.

Origin

Mexico
