Double Flower Forms

This form is by far the most popular flower form. All the stamens and carpels are mostly transformed into wide decorative petals. Unfortunately, the dense mass of petals capture the rain and become burdened with the extra weight and fall over. Supporting plants with 'cages', selecting compact varieties, or varieties with strong stems, prevent the disappointing effects of a heavy rain on blooms.
