Flower form for Bloomquist Tamara. Dahlia World gives the form as fimbriated. [Bloomquist Tamara M.Fim. R. 2009 bloomquist USA ads12]

My limited photo evidence of the blooms suggests that the petal tips are not significantly split or serrated, but the petals are very narrow, curled or twisted, and revolute through most, if not all, of their length. To my inexpert eye, the blooms appear more like a cactus type than anything else. I offer this observation with the caveat that dahlia blooms do not always behave true to their cultivar standards, either in form or color. The blooms I've seen might be anomalous.
