I'm always happy to help... I took years of postgraduate work in Botany and was an Apprentice Gardener for 7 years at the Denver Botanic Gardens... I've raised over 125 prize-winning flowers and shrubs and have dedicated my life to enriching our fellow citizens knowledge and appreciation of all things botanical...

So I can tell you with a high degree of confidence the name of this flower...


I'm only too happy to help...

Hey, since I answered your question in a sarcastic fashion... I've done some digging and actually your flower is a "Show & Tell" Dahlia, introduced around 1985.

Really. It's not "Sally".
