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.

Waterlily Dahlias have fully double blooms characterized by broad and generally sparse ray florets, which are straight or slightly involute along their length giving the flower a shallow appearance. They do resemble waterlily flowers and make excellent cut flowers, as the stems of many varieties have been bred to be very long and sturdy. Whether in a vase or elegantly floating in a shallow bowl, they are perfect eye-catchers!

There are hundreds of Waterlily Dahlias (!!!). Here is the list of our favorite Waterlily Dahlias.
