Aspen Semi Cactus Dahlia
Semi Cactus Dahlia
This is the first to the Dahlias to start blooming. It has an unusual appearance with the slight twisting of the petals. The petals seem to form a bit of an odd angle on some of the flowers. It is a nice bright, clear white and the yellow center stands out in a good way.
‘Aspen’ was introduced in 1989 by the famous Verwer Dahlias company. The tag said 12 to 18 inches tall but it has gotten there already and looks like it is going to get taller.
