Snapshot Posted on June 11, 2013 by Julia at Home on 129 Acres 13 Anybody able to identify these pretty pink posies? They’ve popped up at the corner of the driveshed. I have no idea whether they’re wild or domestic. I do think they’re extremely pretty, however.

I think they may be zinnias.
I always thought zinnias were bigger. I should have had you look at them in person on Sunday!
I think your Auntie Anne should reply – she probably knows what they are. They really are pretty and obviously perennials!
so pretty! i’m curious… my thought was zinnias, too, but i’m not certain.
I’ve discovered I have them in purple too. Not that that’s helped me figure out what they are.
I hopped over here from DIYDiva, and here I can help you with your question : ). It’s a dahlia. I love dahlias, but have trouble growing them in my Texas heat.
Off to discover more of your blog now!
Thanks, Kelly. I didn’t realize dahlias came this small.
Dahlias are one of those flowers that breeders have gone nuts over, so now they come in any number of sizes, shapes, colors, from quite small and delicate, to huge. To my eye, that flower shape you show is distinctive. However, since you’re in Canada, it’s possible it’s a flower I’m not at all familiar with. But I’m pretty convinced it’s a dahlia.
I did a google image search and there’s huge variety in dahlias. There were a couple that look like mine, so I think you may be right.
When I saw them, I also thought dahlias. The bud, stems and everything look right. Pretty!
Pretty was about the extent of my thoughts.
Might be a double hellebore? (http://www.grownorthwest.com/2012/10/ideas-to-create-a-brighter-winter-garden/comment-page-1/)
Enjoying your blog!
I’m pretty sure that’s it! Great find. Thanks for sharing!
