Photographs never seem to adequately capture the subtle beauty of this flower, with its range of orange to peach to yellow. We are really bad about spraying our dahlias--and sometimes about watering them. In spite of this, Crichton Honey survives our hot summers beautifully and blooms prolifically for us. Makes a great cut flower.
