Product Description

EMORY PAUL - (AAID) Introduced in 1962. Don't Miss this one! These giant 12" - 14" rich rosy pruple blooms are magnificent. This is the largest dahlia we offer. It blooms fairly late, but a sure winner in its class. Bush height 4'. Late bloomer. Should do well in exhibition.
 This product ships in the Spring.

I didn't fertilize. I didn't deadhead. I didn't stake. Water and sunshine was all my plants got. It is now early November on Long Island, NY, and my Emory Paul' dahlias are consistently producing arm fulls of flowers the size of pie plates. The pictures I take holding them look as if I've used some clever perspective trick with camera angling. They're that big. And so plentiful I don't know what to do with them.
Beautiful blooms need serious staking to stay upright
Rebecca Rumbley (Bardstown, KY) 10/22/2014 4:36 PM
Had only one big bloom this season from Emory Paul. Will do better to protect it and stake it next year. The one bloom I did get was incredible!
