basally magenta RHS 50A, suffusing to a blend of purplish-red RHS 57A and purplish-red RHS 57B at the margins with a translucent white tube. McMillan and Horobin described 'Dasher' as an apple red with a white throat, red style and white stamens. An interesting feature of the flowers is that the tepals have minute, irregularly spaced, sparse teeth on the margins from midpoint toward the apex.
Clades sizePhylloclades formReferenceComments
USPPphylloclades are elongated with a tendency to cup when new, flattening with age. 6–8 dentations per phylloclade. Hopefully not lost as it is an attractive cultivar. Listed in the Epi-World catalog 1994/1995. McMillan and Horobin listed the name date as 1994, but that was likely based on the date of the Epi-World catalog. Harry Higaki stated his 'Dasher' was similar to 'Rudolph', but the color was slightly different, 'Dasher's growth rate was faster and the flowers and phylloclades were larger.
