I'm not an expert on flowers, but to me it looks like a double form of Dahlia. There are thousands of named cultivars... They're outdoor plants, and technically, you're supposed to lift the bulbs, store them over winter, and replant. I've had them survive for several years in the ground though.

I think it's a chrysanthemum, but can't be more specific as I never grow them. The leaf is not like a dahlia leaf I don't think.....

Fairy snuff! Did add a disclaimer that I'm not a flower grower!
