Dahlia australis - BSWJ10358

Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
It has taken a second determined attempt at collecting this tuberous perennial to succeed. As we were so impressed with its qualities on our first encounter on small ledges during a vertical section of our climb up Volcán Zunil in Guatemala in 2001. Where it had formed a tentative colony of arching stems to less than 1m long, with pinnately arranged elliptic fresh green leaflets and extraordinary large lilac yellow eyed flowers 10cm across. Best in a sunny warm spot in moist but well drained soil, protect the tuberous roots from frost.
