Half and Half Serano
Does anyone have an explanation for a flower that is half one color and half another? It's not the whole plant, just one or two flowers that have appeared over the course of the whole season. The rest of the flowers on this plant are the normal speckled Serano pattern.
Also, another clue in the mystery is that there is a dahlia right beside this Serano dahlia that is also labeled Serano but the flowers on it are 100% red, like the left half of the flower in the picture. Both plants came in the same package labeled Serano from Lowes. I'm guessing that the solid red was a parent of Serano and that there is a bit of reversion going on in this one bud.
