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 to 1 metre 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 mix grows to 50cm (20 in) tall with a multitude of lovely, bright colours. Blooms are large, double, semi-double with a few singles and make excellent cut flowers.
Offered is a packet containing approx 50 seeds and Grownotes.
