Larger than almost any other dahlia on the market, the blooms of 'Emory Paul' are like giant garden lollipops, commanding the attention of every passerby. The round, ruffled blooms stand tall above deep green foliage, but their heft means staking is required to keep the massive blooms unspoiled and upright. As stunning in a vase as it is in the garden, 'Emory Paul' can be enjoyed year after year.
Dahlias are perennial in zones 8-10, but in cooler zones, tubers can be dug after frost comes, stored over winter, then re-planted the following spring. Grow Dahlias in a sunny spot, in average soil that drains well. Keep moisture consistent once it begins to grow and enjoy a non-stop color parade. Deadhead spent blooms to encourage more flowers and pinch off small side buds to encourage larger flowers if desired.
