Dahlia Hill is unlike any other garden. 3,000 dahlias are planted yearly on the eight-level terraced hillside. Showcasing over 250 labeled varieties along the gravel paths, there are examples of all 19 dahlia petal types. The dahlias are in bloom from August through October. The garden is free to view from dawn to dusk and is maintained entirely by volunteers. Extra tubers from Dahlia Hill are sold each spring on the last two Saturdays in May. An annual celebration of the autumn equinox is held each September. Dahlia Hill also has sculpture on view year-round. Four “Seasons of Life” sculptures, designed by Dahlia Hill founder Charles Breed, are arranged beside the pathways. They are symbolic dahlias with human like characteristics. At the top of Dahlia Hill is the Equiline Museum, with artwork by Charles Breed, known nationally for his innovative work using plastic as an art medium. Tours of the museum are available by appointment.
