Group 7--Pompon Dahlias


Pompon dahlias take on a fascinating form, looking almost perfectly spherical. It is a tribute to Mother Nature that such a mesmerising flower can exist and grow so well in different regions and climates. The pompon is similar to a ball dahlia,but have fully double spherical blooms of miniature size, with florets largely involute along their length (longitudinal axis).
Its petals are totally curved inwards to create its tight golf ball-like form. The flowers are not usually any larger than 2 inches or 5 cm across.
Pompon dahlias feature strongly in gardening competitions and exhibitions due to their incredibly intricate form.
