Design History:
This design is one of several in a small series of garden flowers which Hodo created for Takemura. This series was in direct imitation of Maria Gabo's Western Flowers Series, and this particular design has a direct counterpart in that series which was used as a model for the Hodo design (see below). (There are also several other dahlia designs in Western Flowers Series. )

Because there are almost certainly additional designs which remain to be documented, this series has not yet been assigned sequence numbers. For now the design is labeled with its original publication date.

Species Illustrated:
Dahlia, Dahlia hybrid cultivars; The dahlia also has a Japanese name, 天竺牡丹 tenjikubotan, lit. 'Indian peony'. The Japanese transcription the name can be written ダリヤ, dariya; ダーリヤ, daariya; ダリア, daria; or ダーリア, daaria.
