Dahlia australis - BSWJ10389

Pot Size: 7.5 litre
Price: £15.00
As we were so impressed with the qualities of this large flowering species on our first encounter, on small ledges during a vertical section of our climb up Volcán Zunil in Guatemala in 2001. We just had to return and collect seed in 2004, as our first attempt failed. Here it had formed a tentative colony of arching stems to less than 1m tall, 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.COCCINEA 10229
