The classification of dahlias allows you to better identify your favorites among hundreds of varieties. We use the classification suggested by the American Dahlia Society (ADS) which classifies dahlias according to 20 shapes, 10 sizes and 15 colors.

The color of dahlias is subject to change depending on the temperature of the region and the amount of water that has fallen during the summer. We sometimes change the color of the flowers in our online store to better reflect our reality.
