The Portland Dahlia Society started the trial garden in 2003 and it was approved as
an official trial garden of the American Dahlia Society for the 2005 growing season.
The Trial Garden Director is Senior Judge Bill Mishler (360-225-8925) who resides
some 50 or so miles away in Woodland, Washington. The Swan Island Dahlia farm
has donated the space and the labor to water, fertilize and weed the garden which is
located adjacent to their show gardens. The Portland Dahlia Society is very
appreciative of the hard work done by the Gitts family in this endeavor.
In this 2007 growing season, there were about 30 entries.
Below are pictures of the entries followed by some pictures of the garden. I will post
the names of the flowers when I get a list from Mr. Mishler. Pictures taken by Ted
