Cactus dahlias make for an impressive display, bearing double flowerheads with spiky petals in a range of bright colours. Their star-shaped flower form means they stand up well to inclement weather, because they’re less prone to being weighed down by heavy rain, or blown about by wind, than other dahlia types.
