A Visit to Dahlia Hill in Midland, Michigan

In today’s post, I share a little about the amazing summer garden that changed the way I grow flowers. First of all, I couldn’t get over how many varieties of one plant in one location. Above all, I hope you enjoy A Visit to Dahlia Hill in Midland, Michigan. This is truly where I fell in love with the amazing Dahlia Plant.

About Dahlia Hill

Dahlia Hill in Midland Michigan is a Public Garden.  Another reason to visit the garden is that it is created by local volunteers. Coincidently, this location includes eight terraces planted yearly and it seems like maybe over 3,000 dahlias. This location is free for the public to tour therefore you must consider enjoying it year-round.  Garden sculptures are viewable year-round even though the dahlias typically bloom mid to late summer.  Artist Charles Breed who unfortunately passed away in June 2018  has a working studio and museum on location.
