Multivariate analysis 01divergenre among 23 varieties 01dahlia lor nine developmental rhararters
led to their grouping into 10 dusters. The first two dusten had lour varieties, the next two dusten
had three varieties earh, three rlusten romprised two varieties each, and the last three dusters

duster means, rharaders like Rower weight, Rower diameter, number otRowen and shoots/plant,
and length or noral stalk were the major rarton ordifferentiation among these 23 varieties. The
