Dahlia pteropoda - BSWJ10240

Pot Size: 7.5 litre
Price: £25.00
An impressive species with obvious horticultural merits when we first encountered this beauty growing at the edge of dense forest at 2700m near Ixtalan in southern Mexico in 2004. Where there was only a single plant in seed that had formed a small clump of arching stems to 1m tall, with pinnately arranged leaves to 30cm long and extraordinary purple yellow eyed flowers 8cm across. Best in a sunny warm spot in moist but well drained soil, protect the tuberous roots from frost.
