With her plate-sized flowers up to 30cm (12"), "Emory Paul" is one of the dahlias with the largest flowers.
And, as she's even won awards, I guess, in this case, size does matter.
Rich pink with mottled petals, she makes the perfect cut flower.
Especially enchanting with "Le Baron" and "Hemisphere". Or elegant with "Café au Lait".
Since the flowers are so large, you'll most likely need to support her when she's in full bloom.
Tip: Pinch dahlias as soon as they are 20cm to 30cm (8" to 12") tall: simply shorten the shoot tip by a third. This way, they'll form more shoots, flower more and look bushier.
And, if you're hungry for more dahlia details, have a look at my "DAHLIA DELIGHT" eBook. Everything you ever wanted to know about caring for your dahlias and, of course, full to the brim with beautiful photos and inspiration.
Planting: May, after the last frost — dahlias are sensitive to frost! Or pre-grow them in a frost-free environment.
Location: Preferably in full sun. Dahlias also tolerate partial shade, but they won't flower as lavishly.

🐝 Dahlias are often wrongly described as not insect-friendly. But for most of them, as soon as the flowers open up (even the fully double ones), Bees & Co can access stamen and pollen.
