Planting Tips for Dahlia Imperialis, Bell Tree Dahlia
Choosing a location
Dahlias will grow almost anywhere and are very forgiving, easy to grow garden plants. They will thrive in full sun but can tolerate some partial shade – the more sun, the bigger the flowers. Try to select a location that receives at least 6 hours of sun and is sheltered from the wind. Dahlias like to grow in well-drained and slightly acidic soil. If soil holds standing water for more than 24 hours after a heavy rain, it is normally a sign of poor drainage.
Dahlia Imperialis can be planted safely after the last frost date. Watch the weather forecast closely to make sure conditions won’t be too cold or too wet.
Space your Imperialis tubers so they have enough room for air circulation. Allow 6-8 ft between plantings to avoid overcrowding.

These tubers came healthy, and started to sprout right away. They do need a longer growing season in the colder zones to bloom, so allow extra time. I start mine inside with grow lights. Last year mine were almost 10′ tall. Something different to try!
