    Hi,
    Please help identify the following flowers.
    Flower 1 has leaves similar to Flower 2, but their petals have slightly different texture and Flower 1 has 3 layers of petal.

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    1-4 - Could be various varieties of Zinnia.

    5 - Not sure what leaves go with that flower.

    6 - Cosmos possibly (the very thin leaves) and more Zinnia - broad leaves.

    1-4 are Calendula oficianalis cultivars, 5 looks like Dimorphotheca, and 6 is definitely Cosmos bipinnatus
