Andrew Charles was first introduced to dahlia lovers in 2010.

His rich golden orange blooms present abundantly on a 5’ bush with long sturdy stems and an upright presentation.

Long-lasting in bouquets, it’s a very good cut flower. 

Officially a 4-6” wide Informal Decorative form, Andrew’s petals splay playfully from his center, sometimes behaving, sometimes like long floppy ears. The bloom’s depth is shallow for size; and the yellows, reds, gold and occasional hints of rose cause this flower to combine and contrast well with just about every other flower possible in a bouquet.

This and other blooms are available at the Ridgecrest Pub on NE 165th at 5th NE, for a donation to the Senior Center. New bouquets every Tuesday and Friday.
