A flower from Yunnan

Na Xi Flower - © Christopher Martin-7218

When I was in Shangri-La last September it was still early in their autumn season so wild flowers were still in bloom throughout the countryside.  I don’t know the name of this flower I found while traveling the countryside in the Na Xi region of Yunnan Province but it was strikingly beautiful to my eye.

2/19 update: Thank you Vicki and Jo Ann for identifying this flower as a Red Dahlia!

  7. Lovely image of a Dahlia, particularly as red flowers are not easy to photograph.
