Hi All,

I bought a bunch of flowers on the way home today, with a view to doing a bit of macro or close-up work on them. I can identify all but one of the blooms in the bunch.

I wonder if there are a few flower experts out there who might know the name of this flower? Each flower head is about 2 inches across.

Any help would be appreciated.



Many thanks.

I'm not expert but we have a bunch of these growing in our back yrad, here in Pregon. We call them Dahlia's. To be really specific, your's is a "Bristol Stripe" variety/color of Dahlia. If you are inter4ested, there is a lot of information on the web at /www.paradisegarden.com on these.

Hi Mike,

I don't think they can be the Bristol Stripe, as those are 6 inches or more across. The flower I'm trying to identify is only 2 inches or less across on each bloom.

I did think about Dahlias, but most of them seem to be much larger than 2 inches.

Thanks for the info. Bye for now.

Might be Mums or Batchlors Buttons, not sure but they look familar. My grandmother was a flower person and had all sorts of flowers around her home when I was growing up. Very Happy

BTW George, your image is exceedingly large but beautiful! Wink

Hi Ken,

Sorry about the large image, but I wanted to make it big enough for viewrs to see the details. I thought the image limit in the forum was 150KB. If I'm mistaken, I apollogise. I'd better read the rules again.

Anyway, I've heard from another source that the flower is a "Spray Chrysanthemum", but it would be difficult to ID the exact variety. Is that what your mean when you say "Mums".

I too like the close up of this flower. I might print this out large scale.

Thanks for the info. Bye for now.

Hi George Very Happy

It maybe a "Spray Chrysanthemum", I am not sure nor am I even quaintly familar with flowers. I just remember my grandmother fussing over hers. She really loved them.

I was not referring to the image file size but the demensions of the image, 640 pixels max. on either side. It is a lovely photograph however and would make a nice print. Very Happy

Hi Ken,

Message understood about the size thing.

I was originally going to make 2 separate images and show them one after the other, but thought doing them side by side would help with identification.

I'll remember for next time. Very Happy
