As a companion to Mary Wilbur’s story about her love affair with the delightful, late fall-blooming tree dahlia (Dahlia imperialis and others), which was featured in the October 2010 article in Pacific Horticulture, we offer the following list of nurseries that offer one or more kinds of tree dahlia. Be sure to contact any nursery before visiting to confirm that there will be any available. Rooted cuttings are usually available in early spring. Cuttings from the bamboo-like stems of tree dahlia root easily in late winter; in fact, tree dahlias are most often available as “pass-along” plants from neighbors and friends.
