Oh, and I forgot to mention that these hybrids reputedly flower at least a
month earlier than the tree dahlias, making them useful for those of us who
live in frosty areas.  Our Dahlias imperialis here in Canberra start
flowering about may (the D. excelsa flowers in April) and these hybrids
started in March.  This is a HUGE step forward in bringing tree dahlias to
being useful in more gardens in frost areas.
