While wandering around a commercial Dahlia field, I came across a few non-Dahlias. I'm not sure what these flowers are... Osteospermum perhaps? Strawflowers? Can you help identify them please?

Bill, those are georgeous. Are you sure the center one is not a dahlia? it reminds me of something my mother had that I thought was a type of dahlia. anyway, they are beautiful.

my guess: middle picture

a hybrid of collarette dahlia, flowers with a ruffle short petals surrounding the disc like a lace collar?
