DECORATIVE DAHLIAS

There are three different types for show judging purposes - Formal, Informal and Semi-Decorative. Decorative competition classes at shows normally allow any of the three types to be entered but judging is based on the exact type exhibited. The specific judging standards for each type appear below.

Bloom size may be any of the five size classifications from Miniature (under 120mm) to Giant (260mm and over). See Judging Guidelines for the size classifications and additional standards that apply to all dahlia types.   

Formal Decorative Standard

Bloom should be fully double. The centre should be closed and should be as high as the surrounding face florets.

Florets should radiate evenly from the centre without gaps, should be broad, smooth and being neither markedly involute nor revolute, gently recurving towards the stem, The tips of the florets should be preferably rounded. Depth of the bloom should be at least two thirds of, but not more than its diameter.


Glenmarc Margaret

informal decorative Standard

Bloom should be fully double. Centre should be cone shaped, as high as the surrounding face florets of the bloom.


Florets should radiate evenly from the centre without gaps to be broad, slightly twisted or wavy mature florets giving the effect of not being flat. The tips of the florets may be revolute for not more than one quarter the length of the floret and should recurve towards the stem. Depth of the bloom should be at least two thirds, but not more than its diameter.
