|Art W. is named after Art Weurth of Olympia, Washington. He had the audacity of saying that
he appreciated this flower when it was shown as a seedling. Art W. is a novelty flower that
has the characteristics of a waterlily dahlia and a semi cactus dahlia. It is extremely flat with
only about 7 rows of ray florets, just like a waterlily. However, instead of having flat petals
with rounded tips like a waterlily, Art W. has classic semi cactus rolled petals. The flame
colors are very deep and the flowers are about 7 inches in diameter. Art W. is an excellent
cut flower and the florists love it . Grows on a vigorous bush; about 5 feet tall. Like Art W.
the flower blooms a bit late. Pictures cannot show how bright the orange is.
