Have tree dahlia stems for trade

A terrible storm toppled two large stalks off my Dahlia Imperialis "Double or Nothing". I've been told you can start new plants with stem cuttings, but I have never tried (one of these giants is enough, lol). I've stuck them in dirt for the moment, but seriously don't want or need a couple dozen tree dahlias, lol.

I can offer multiple stem pieces per trade.

HIgh on my want list right now are rhiz. begonias with interesting leaf colors, Egret Flower(Habenaria radiata),or Worsleya procera, amaryllis, orchids, but will consider any heat loving shade plants. Tempt me.

I can't tempt you with any of your wants, but I'm going to move your post down since no one seems interested at this point (even though the dahlia Imperialis is a marvelous thing to watch grow!) They are hard to keep growing til bloom-time this far north.

I think you need to start from roots or cuttings vs seed Izhar.

Plant Delights does carry them here in the USA, but I don't know that they ship internationally. Maybe worth an email if you're interested. It's a fun website!

Thank you so much Poochella :)

One major drawback for the plant material (except the seeds) is that it requires special packaging and phytosanitary certificates involvement with customs (our customs are ruthless along with plenty of agonizing paperwork).

Seeds do arrive safely here, I will write them an email, lets see what they have to say about it..

Regards,

Izhar

BTW I haven't seen you sharing your beauties here for this season..

Please post what you find out about international D.Imperialis shipping, or if they even offer seeds.

We got off to a slow start here a cold, wet spring. But things are growing nicely now, with buds and branches forming daily. I don't have many new ones this year.
