Exhibits of Peony Dahlias are rare in Australian shows. Bishop of Llandaff and related cultivars are peonies but are normally grown as garden varieties and usually only appear at shows in Floral Art classes. Most examples of Peony Dahlias are from North America and are not available in Australia.
The specific judging standards for the type appear below. See Judging Guidelines for additional standards that apply to all types. Bloom size must be under 160mm.
Bloom should be almost flat. Centre should be open, disc shaped with fresh pollen bearing stamens. Surrounding the centre there should be two to four rows of ray florets. Florets adjacent to the disc flower may be smaller, twisted or curled.
