Neutral DreamOfSpring On Mar 31, 2005, DreamOfSpring from Charleston, SC (Zone 9a) wrote:

Also appears in some texts as "Dahlohnega", note extra 'h'. A relative new-comer, introduced in 1986. Flowers are med size,formal, dbl, antique-white, with possible hint of yellow.

On my plant, flowers are a very lovely white to pale cream when they 1st open, but over time darken to a less attractive dk cream with dirty-white/yellowed centers. My plant is very productive, blooming in several iterative "waves" in late winter through early spring.

Outer petals tend to flatten out and even tilt slightly backward while center petals tend to cup forward upon 1st opening and flatten out with age.
