Collerette dahlias have blooms with a single outer ring of ray florets, surrounding a circular central disc of tubular disc florets. The outer parts of the ray florets are usually flat and may overlap. The inner parts are modified and form a collar of petaloids. This collar does not normally exceed half the length of the outer parts and is often , though not necessarily, of contrasting colour.
