What Are These Pink Flowers From Pikes Place Market
Ask the Expert:What kind of flower is this?
I saw this flower at the Seattle Pike Place Market but I forgot to ask what kind of flower it is?
The main color is a light pink with a yellow center and yellow on the tips.
Thanks for any help! Adam Lowe
Flower Shop Network Plant Expert Reply:I believe what you have is a type of Dahlia. This genus has about 30 different species and a variety of different flower forms: formal decorative, informal decorative, semi-cactus, straight cactus, laciniated, ball, waterlily, anemone, collarette, orchid and single. I am guessing that your Dahlias are informal decorative.
Depending on the form, some species have very open bloom with few petals -Â while other species have tight blooms with an abundance ofÂ petals.Â Dahlias also come in a variety of colors: red, orange, yellow, pink, bi-color, purple, burgundy and white.
Dahlias bloom in mid-summer and are perennial in zone 9-11.Â However, the tubers can be lifted in the winter and replanted in the spring in zones that are too cold.
