Vassio Meggos Lavender Dahlia

Vassio Meggos Lavender Dahlia

This lavender giant is a wonderful dahlia to grow, show and cut. Large decorative type with huge lilac blooms. The easy-to-grow plant is 4-5 feet tall. The 9 inch lavender heads grow tall on long straight stems. The flowers last a long time in a vase and on the stem. A lavender pink sport from the variety Spartacus. The blooms is fold back to the stem like the parent plant. This is one beautiful and impressive Dahlia. Long stems which occasionally are not up to supporting the large flowers but it wins at lots of Dahlia shows. This is another one of my nicest dahlias by far. This plant gets about a good 5.5′ tall and is loaded with tons of huge purplish pink blooms. Make sure you stake this one really good because it gets real top heavy. Fast grower.
Vassio Meggos Decorative dahlias have fully double blooms showing no central disc. The florets are broad and are essentially flat, being neither markedly involute or revolute. In some cultivars the florets may be re-curved, while in others ( informal ), they may be slightly twisted.
Decorative dahlias are favorites of exhibitors and gardeners alike and are popular with flower arrangers.  They have fully double flower heads, showing no central disc, that range in size from miniature to giant with ray-florets that are broad and flat, or involute for less than three-quarters of their length, terminating in blunt pointed ends.  The plants have a corresponding range of heights and spreads.

CLASSIFICATION OF DAHLIA FLOWERS

 

 

  • Single dahlias have blooms with a single outer ring of florets, which may overlap, the centre forming a disc.
  • Anemone-flowered dahlias have blooms with one or more outer rings of generally flattened ray florets surrounding a dense group of tubular florets, and showing no disc.
  • Collerette dahlias have blooms with a single outer ring of generally flat ray florets, which must overlap, with a ring of small florets (the collar) the centre forming a disc.
  • Waterlily dahlias have fully double blooms characterized by broad ray florets that are slightly involute along their length (longitudinal axis) giving a saucer shaped appearance to the bloom. The depth should be not more than one third of the diameter of the bloom.
  • Decorative dahlias have fully double blooms showing no disc. The ray florets are generally broad and flat and may be involute for no more than 75% of their length (longitudinal axis) or slightly twisted, and usually bluntly pointed
  • Ball dahlias have fully double blooms, ball shaped or slightly flattened. The ray florets rounded at the tips, with margins spirally arranged and involute for at least 75% of the length of the florets
  • Pompon dahlias have fully double spherical blooms, with florets largely involute along their length (longitudinal axis).
  • Cactus dahlias have fully double blooms, the ray florets are usually pointed, the majority narrow and revolute for 65% or more of their length (longitudinal axis) and either straight or incurving.
  • Semi-Cactus dahlias have fully double blooms; the ray florets are usually pointed and revolute for more than 25% and less than 65% of their length and broad at the base and either straight or incurving.
  • Any dahlias which do not fall into type 1 – 9 inclusive and type 11, 12,13 & 14 e.g. Thistle Dahlias, etc. This group includes species dahlias
  • Fimbriated dahlias have blooms where the tips of the ray florets should be evenly split or notched into two or more divisions, uniformly throughout the bloom to create a fringed overall effect. The petals may be flat, involute, revolute, straight, incurving or twisted.
  • Star dahlias have blooms with a single outer ring of florets surrounding the disc. Ray florets are uniformly either involute or revolute.
  • Double Orchid dahlias have fully double blooms showing no disc and have triangular centers. Ray florets are narrowly lance shaped and either involute or revolute.
  • Paeony dahlias have multiple outer rings of ray florets surrounding a disc, ray florets are flat or slightly involute at base and are flat or are to some extent revolute.

Dahlia flowers are remarkable because of their diversity in bloom shape and color. Besides having several size categories, they are also available with 11 different bloom styles, including the decorative, cactus, single and ball styles, all organized by the style and shape of the petals. Single-flowering dahlias, for example, are any type with one row of petals. These varieties are normally 3 feet or shorter and produce buds that are less than 5 inches across. There are more than a dozen colors and color combinations available to dahlia growers. Solid colors include white, yellow, red, scarlet, pink, purple and orange.

The Dahlia or Dahlia hortensis, as it’s called by its scientific name, is a bushy perennial that is easy to spot.
