Originated by W.F. Homeyer Jr., of Macon, Georgia, USA. Registered (1986) under the name 'Dahlohnega', but also known as 'Golden Anniversary' and so often given to celebrate a Golden Wedding anniversary.|
The medium-sized, formal double flowers can vary from a creamy-white to a pale yellow, and being late flowering (April into May) are often unaffected by frosts. The plant habit is upright, bushy and compact, with dark green, glossy leaves, and is fairly slow growing - a 10 year old plant would probably be no more than about 4ft (120cm) high.
An excellent specimen plant for growing in a container or small garden.
