Topic of the week: Dahlia species and related Genera

The Dahlia Imperialis in my garden has been putting a bloom or two out pretty 
consistently all spring and summer.  We had a mild winter and summer has gone 
from cool to hot to cool a lot.  I am in Northern Calif.  This is the second 
year I have had it.  A friend has just sent me a white form in a pot.  I am 
interested in the double forms and just got really excited reading about the 
Apricot ball form.  Think I will try to pollinate some regular sized Hybrids with 
the tree Dahlias when they are in bloom.  Think that will require putting a 
ladder next to the tree Dahlia.
