​​​​​​​​Dahlias are classified according to the shape and arrangement of their petals. Single Flowering dahlias have no more than a few rows of petals and show a central disc. Double flowering dahlias have multiple rows of petals and display no central disc. Double flowering dahlias include formal and informal decorative, cactus and semi-cactus, ball, miniature ball, waterlily, pompon and laciniated types classified by size.  Single flowering dahlias include single, anemone, collarette, peony, orchid, orchette and mignon single.  The novelty dahlia can be either single or double, depending on the variety.
