Hooked on dahlias
Dr. Richard "Rick" W. Peters' garden in Muskegon, Michigan, includes 'Hilltop Sapphire' and 'Camano Pet' dahlias. Dr. Peters was hooked 12 years ago by these tender perennials. A friend casually mentioned that he had 600 varieties. "I wanted every one of those things," Rick says. Now, Rick is president of his local dahlia society, has helped write a book on dahlias and enters national contests.
