This verietie is one of my favourite!!! It's truth that this plant blossoms enough late (August), but in our climate we can enjoy beauty of flowes till November. In my garden the size of flowers reaches 35 cm in diameter!!! Adore!!!

I tried Emory Paul for two years: so slow to form and bloom here that I've given up. By the time it opens it gets water/cold damage. Just not worth it in our climate.
One fix might be to start it very early in a pot before planting out.

I feel bad saying something negative about a dahlia!
