I cannot for the life of me track down the name of this flower. Google image search wasn't much help either.

Hi! Pretty sure this is a dahlia. Does it have a bulb underground? Need to have a picture of the entire plant to be sure... –  stormy Aug 19 at 0:20
    
That's what I was thinking and it does indeed have a bulb underground, but I would like to know the specific variety of dahlia if possible. Thanks! –  Fran71 Aug 19 at 0:33
    
Yeah, then we'll need a pic of your entire plant. Include something for determining scale. Do you remember where you got it? Pretty tough to I.D. the variety on Dahlias, but hang in there. There are people here that might be able to do just that. A few more pictures would be helpful, however...! –  stormy Aug 19 at 0:36
    
OK! I just got your new picture, that will help tremendously! Thanks! –  stormy Aug 19 at 0:38

Possibly Dahlia cv. Seduction from group 5 (decorative).

Decorative dahlias have fully double blooms showing no disc. The ray florets are generally broad and flat and may be involute for no more than 75% of their length (longitudinal axis) or slightly twisted, and usually bluntly pointed

Fantastic! Thank you! –  Fran71 Aug 19 at 3:25

That is a miniature Dahlia. Possibly the Decorative Dahlia Seduction. See BJY's answer for the details.
