If you like dahlias, Dahlia Hill in Midland, Michigan is a place you should visit. It contains 3,000 dahlia plants (250 varieties) grown on a series of eight stone terraces. The garden was begun by artist, Charles Breed after his daughter gave her mother a couple of dahlia plants for Mother's Day.
In addition to the beautiful dahlias, visitors will also see sculptures by Mr. Breed and have an opportunity to visit his studio and museum.
The peak season to visit is August through October, but during the last two weekends in May, you can buy dahlia tubers for $2.00 each.
The garden is open from dawn to dusk. Admission is free.
