Dear all,
I recently read a french article on  the tree dahlia, which states that D
imperialis and D arborescens are two sepârate species (I allways assumed
that they are synonymous).  The article states :
D arborea (syn D excelsia): 4-6 m high (15-20ft)  colour  "pale purple"
D. imperialis: 2-3 high  colour  very pale,  with pink towards the center.
Can anyone confirm whether this statement is correct. I cannot find any
useful reference with Google on this species
(The species I have here is 4-6 m high with pale pink flowers.)

Look forward to any opinion on the matter
