40" tall x 24" wide. Larger than almost any other dahlia variety 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, the flowers of 'Emory Paul' can be enjoyed year after year by digging and storing the tender tubers in a box of peat moss for the winter. To encourage this beauty to perform to the max, plant it in a sunny spot in well-drained soil. And don't forget to keep the plant properly irrigated during dry spells to encourage maximum bloom production. Deer and pest resistant.
