Enormous wild species dahlia
Usually grown for its huge tropical foliage
Nodding mauve flowers produced in mild climates
This enormous wild species dahlia can reach up to three metres in a single growing season. Sporting huge, elder-like leaves of around a metre long held on impressive stems which resemble bamboo, Dahlia ‘Imperialis’ is usually grown as a foliage plant. Its jungly appearance makes it a magnificent specimen for a tropical border.
The flowers don’t appear until October, so it requires a warm position to bloom, either in a greenhouse/conservatory or a sheltered position in mild gardens, where the flowers won’t risk being prematurely cut down by frost. If you succeed at the challenge, you’ll be rewarded with pale mauve, yellow-centred flowers which nod down on you from an intimidating height!
