GrrlScientist posted a couple of photos of cultivated dahlias in Manhattan (one so pink it hurts my eyes), so I though I’d post photos of some relatives of this and other garden ornamentals that grow wild in the Sierra Madre Occidental of western Chihuahua.

Update: Species-level IDs of Salvia townsendii and Euphorbia colorata courtesy of Wynn Anderson, Botanical Curator Emeritus at the Chihuahuan Desert Gardens of the Centennial Museum at the University of Texas at El Paso.
