The most beautiful types of dahlias: 28 photos
In the middle of summer luxurious flowers bloom - dahlias. They are especially loved by gardeners due to their chic look. Plus, “dáhlias” (Latin name) are not very demanding for care, and a long flowering period allows you to enjoy them until the fall.
Dahlia is a plant in the Astro family, originally from Mexico, but today it is distributed throughout the world. In the 18th century, dahlia tubers were brought to Europe and grown in royal gardens. The flower was given the Russian name “Dahlia” in honor of the German scientist Johann Gottlieb Georgi, who made a considerable contribution to Russian science. According to some reports, there are more than forty species of dahlias. And the variety of varieties, hybrids and subspecies is simply amazing!
Spherical or pompon dahlias
The inflorescences of these species are distinguished by their unique spherical shape, which is obtained due to the special bending of terry petals arranged in dense rows.
In the flowers of the collar dahlias, the outer row consists of large petals, and inside are smaller and thinner ones painted in a contrasting color.
Large thick terry flowers of this dahlia are unusually spectacular. They have dissected edges on the petals.
