Can anyone identify the red + salmon colored flowers? I got them at the Ithaca farmer's market and I don't know what they are (chrysanthemums?).

The greenish centre of the salmon one makes me think it's a 'mum, but the thick piles of petals of the red one look very like a zinnia to me.

Zinnias were common in gardens when I was a kid- very easy to grow, and they last forever as cut flowers- but I haven't ever seen them in markets. Perhaps they're considered too common?

The red and salmon flowers are dahlias.
