A Dahlia of the Cactus Type
Dahlias of this type, with tubular and pointed ray flowers are familiar in our gardens. Here, as in the other pictures shown, Mr. Burbank is experimenting with more primitive types of dahlia, and seeking to develop-new propensities. He has produced a large number of improved varieties of the conventional types; but his newer experiments, as already stated, have to do with species and varieties that have been less extensively cultivated.
