Is this a chrysanthemum? It doesn't have the circular "beads" in the center (that are the same color as the petals) as I am used to seeing, so I'm confused. Thank you in advance!

It does look more like a zinnia.

I honestly had to double check. Zinnias are a lot fancier than the ones in my GreatAunt's flower bed Smiling
