Ball form dahlias are among nature's most fascinating creations, with rows of perfectly rolled petals circling ever tighter into the center. These flowers have an imaginary quality that temps one to reach over (discretely) to touch the centerpiece, confirming that the blooms are indeed real. Ideal for tightly planted gardens, Cornel has a slender profile and doesn't need much space. Consider planting with a sun proof red leafed coleus as in two of the photos here - genius!
