Botanical name: Dahlia coccinea    Family: Asteraceae (Sunflower family)

Single dahlias have blooms with a single outer ring of florets, which may overlap, the centre forming a disc. Dahlia coccinea is a species of dahlia, refined and very unlike what is mostly found in gardens nowadays. Dahlias are native from Mexico into Columbia and were hybridized by the Aztecs, so this plant has been popular for a long time.
