7301—7315 WATERLILY Dahlias: The bloom should be fully double and symmetrical; the side view should be flat to saucer-shaped in arrangement, and the layer of florets should be open faced to give a delicate appearance. The center should be closed and dome-shaped breaking gradually to four to seven rows of fully developed outer florets. Outer florets should be broad and slightly cupped with rounded tips. A bloom position at 45 degrees is preferred, but a top facing bloom is acceptable. In petite waterlily cultivars (from 1 to 3 inches) in diameter, the depth should contain fewer rows of ray florets in order to represent the waterlily form accurately. The depth should never be more than one-half the diameter of the bloom.
