Exhbition Dahlias

The Exhibition Cactus Dahlia is one of the four Cactus types. It is normally included in separate classes at shows from those for the Semi-Cactus and Cactus types.

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

exhibition cactus Standard

Bloom should be fully double. Centre should be cone shaped and as high as the face florets.


Florets should radiate evenly from the centre without uneven gaps between the rows to outer florets. Florets should all be very narrow, long and pointed with revolute edges overlapping for as near as possible to their length giving a long tube effect, rather than a flattened appearance. Towards the tips, the florets should be strongly incurved and may regularly curve one way. Depth should be at least half but not more than two thirds its diameter. There should be sufficient florets to prevent gaps in formation and outline.
