Dahlias are absolutely breathtaking flowers. Flowering for months, they inject color and drama wherever you grow them: in mixed borders in the garden, in containers or window boxes on balconies and on patios.

They are available in a rich variety of bloom colors, shapes and sizes. Flowers can be as small as 2 inches in diameter or up to one foot. They can be single-flowering (orchid-flowering, anemone and collarettes) or double flowering (cactus, semi-cactus, formal or informal decorative dahlias, ball and pompons). Their wide height range can start as low as 12 inches and go up to 6 feet.

Pompon and Ball Dahlias feature relatively small, fully double, globe-shaped flowers with petals blunt or slightly rounded at their tips. How not to marvel at the perfect petal arrangement of these dahlias? They display an infinite swirl of florets with fold upon fold of incredibly flawless petals.

PomPon Dahlias are almost round in shape with tightly quilled petals. Their flowers are smaller than those of the Ball Dahlias (2 in. across or 5 cm).
Ball Dahlias may be ball-shaped or slightly flattened at the face, with their ray florets blunt, rounded, or indented. Involute for most of their length, fully involute for about one-half their length, and normally displayed in a spiral arrangement.

All these Pompon and Ball Dahlias are knockouts. If grown for the vase, choose any of them to add an interesting dimension to your flower arrangements.
