Calling all my plant/flower expert friends……… help me out with an ID if my guess is incorrect. I “think” this is a Dahlia. Am I close? There are so many variations of Dahlias that I’m not sure. I look forward to your answers. This photo was taken in 2016 while we were in Victoria, British Columbia and were visiting Butchart Gardens.

Thank you for your comments and critiques, they always make me happy.
I'm thinking this is a fabulous image!!! Definitely has all the characteristics of a Dahlia: it has petals, petals, more petals, it's colorful, it has a stem, there's probably a stamen in there amongst all those petals...see, definitely a Dahlia...
