The Dahlia of old, a 2 metre plant with huge blooms which required staking, is long gone. The modern Dahlia is divided into 6 groups based on the flower and usually grows from 30cm to 1.5 metres tall. The groups are:
Cactus or Semi Cactus – double flowers whose petals revolute (roll backwards for half their length);
Decorative – Double flowers with flat tipped petals, largest flowers, tall plants;
Pompon – Double flowers, globe shaped, small flowers, petals revolute;
Anemone – small flowers with one or more rows of flat petals that resemble an anemone;
Collarette – flowers small to medium have large, flat ray petals surrounding an open centre. A wreath of shorter petals, often of a different colour, forms a ‘collar’;
Peony-Flowered – semi-double flowers with an open centre; and
Mignon – delicate, single, open flowers with a prominent yellow disc in the centre.
This dwarf double & semi-double mix grows to 30cm (12in) tall with lovely, bright colours of red, orange violet, white, burgundy, lemon and yellow. Their small size makes them suitable for bedding, border, window box or patio, with the tidy, compact plants bearing an abundance of double and semi-double blooms.
