Tree Dahlia

The buds I showed you in April are opening:
Tree dahlia (Dahlia imperialis).


  1. How tall is your tree dahlia? it has a beautiful flower, but that would be too late for us here as our common dahlias have been hit by the cold.

  2. This particular stem grew sideways instead of up for some reason, so I had to bend down to take this photo. Most of the stems are 3 metres high or so. The taller ones have been bashed around by the wind and rain, but they are flowering nicely. Fortunately our weather is not as cold as yours, Kaite.

  3. thanks, they're very beautiful when they grow tall and proud.
