Mingus art is the name of an unusual orchid style dahlia cultivar. Recently I was finally able to get a good bloom to photograph..

Thanks to both of you for the comments.
I believe this is the first year that the Cylburn Arboretum has grown this variety of dahlia.
It is a winner.

Indeed an unusual dahlia, and lovingly photographed as well.

A gorgeous shot . . . but I was also thinking of Mingus the bass player. I believe you "got it in your soul."
