Q: When did the Ball, Pompon, Cactus, Anemone, Peony and Waterlily forms emerge?
A: The ball-shaped dahlia, perfectly rounded with dozens of ray florets swirling out from a tightly closed center, was developed in 1818. It was followed by the pompon, the cactus, the anemone, the peony and the waterlily. Star and orchid emerged in the 20th century, along with floriferous dwarf dahlias ideal for bedding and containers. Source Information
