My already-bloomed yellow roses are turning to their peachy color. This is so cool, I didn't know they could do that

I knew you wouldn't be disappointed. The peony I posted a pic of is now at least 50% larger! Rain tonight, so it will probably be done for tomorrow. The garden is really pretty now. Here's another of my wife's flowers.

I bought my place from a lady who must have spent a small fortune on plants and flowers. I am still discovering things a year and a half later that I didn't know were there as they bloom and flower.

What is this? I have seen it somewhere in one of my flower books but I can't find it. Do you know what it's called? It wasn't there last year, but now it has bloomed and I think it is just so unique...

BK - I wish I could tell you what it is, but I don't think we have that kind of flower out here in CO - and I can't seem to find it in my "wild flowers of N America" book (I don't even know if it IS a wild flower). Hopefully there is someone who is more informed than I.

Thanks for trying. I guess now is as good a time as any to take a computer break and look through my books once again. I KNOW I have seen it before!!

BK - I've seen both Dahlias and Daisies with that petal pattern. Here are some photos of Orchid Dahlias that are similar.

http://www.dahlias.freeservers.com/p211.htm

The bud and plant itself in your photo looks more like a daisy though. I have been racking my brain trying to remember which type of daisy has that particular petal pattern, but I just can't seem to get the ol' gray matter to cough up the info...

If you look on the page above at the Honka Dahlia, you'll see a bud there. Dahlia buds almost always look like that. If that's what you see on your plant (hard to tell exactly from your photo) before the bud ever starts to open, I'd say you've got a Dahlia. If your plant never gets buds that look round, smooth and glossy like that at the early stage before starting to bloom, then I'd say it's probably some sort of daisy.

You might take one of the blooms down to your local nursery and see if they can tell you...
