Edges refer to the outer periphery of the petals and occasionally the sepals.
- Edges can be structural, i.e. have knobs, braids, tentacles, fringe, and teeth.
- Edges can also be of a different color. If the edge is narrow and gold, silver, or white, it is referred to as a wire edge.
- Edges of a different color or colors can be narrow (referred to as a picotee) or wide (referred to as a border).
- Some structural edges reach down into the surface of the flower. These super sculpted edges give a three-dimensional quality to the flower.
