Tree Dahlia


Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist

Wild collected tree dahlias via Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy board director Cody Hinchliff. Taken from cliffs alongside waterfalls in Oaxaca Cody's description of the progenitor group included the phrases "typical" and "nothing particularly unique", if this is the regular same-ol-same-ol for him then I need to reevaluate some things. For us not cavorting in the primeval lands South of the equator 10 foot Dahlias are pretty extraordinary. Pink flowers (small for their stalks but still quite nice) in the wild but these are seedlings so who knows maybe you'll get that special one that makes you a million dollars and leaves Kelly cursing that we should never have sold them.
