When you visit the Dahlia Hill garden, walk up any of three stairways to be surrounded by 3,000 dahlia plants arranged on eight stone terraces. You will see over 300 varieties of dahlias, with an example of each variety planted and labeled along gravel pathways. At intervals along the stairways you can stop to examine four cast aluminum sculptures by local artist Charles Breed, depicting the cycles of life and the seasons. Benches and resting areas are located near the parking area and at the top terrace. Also at the top of the Hill are two raised planters - one a donor circle and the other a memorial circle.
The Dahlia Hill Society is a nonprofit organization with the purpose of educating the public about dahlias. Unlike many other societies, whose members grow dahlias for shows or competitions, our goal is to have show-quality dahlias in a garden setting. If you see a volunteer working in the garden when you visit, feel free to ask questions.
