Tree Dahlia question

tonieb(Zone6)April 25, 2008

I am new to gardening and thats why I came here.

I was looking for "rare" plants and found 2 people posting an ebay ad for tree dahlias. Does anyone have any feedback on how to maintain and care for them? I am new to this and like to learn more before buying. Whats a reasonable price

Thanks ladies and gents

Annies annuals has these plants at a very reasonable price, when available. I can tell you though that even my growing season was not long anough to produce flowers, as these like to bloom around the end of November and here in Oregon by then it was just too cold... The plant itself got about 7 feet tall and was very pretty, but no flowers.

Lala told it like it is - very, VERY tall Dahlia, but unless you have a long growing season, there will be no blooms. Mine is now about 2' tall, but I KNOW it won't bloom for me, here in zone 6.
