Welcome to one of Westport's hidden gems. A flower garden which exemplifies Betty's love for mother nature.
This is Betty's "Jardin" in the beautiful Hunt Club section of Westport, CT. Betty planted over 400 tubers this season and the dahlias are as beautiful as ever! It a wonderful place to sit and listen to the birds and wind chimes. A little piece of paradise and added charm with Betty's signature touches.
This dahlia was introduced in 1955. This is an outstanding flower and its bi-color is very dependable as far as staying true to color. The average size of this beautiful flower is 8”. The blooms are dark red with white tips. The very strong stems hold the flowers erect at all times. This is a staple flower in Betty’s Garden.

TWYNING'S AFTER EIGHT
Twining's After Eight grow over 3 feet, with very dark blackish-brown foliage and single white flowers 3 inches across, with broad rays florets and a deep yellow central disk, opening from late summer. Betty uses these as great accent flowers.
This 8-inch dahlia blossoms curl slightly and they resemble flames. It is a very distinguishable flower and has a unique look. This is one of Betty’s favorite dahlias.
Betty’s selection at her best, here's a color to get your attention! Two colored 4" blooms of fuchsia raspberry with pink tips, and a variated collar of pink and fuchsia. This is a very profuse bloomer and grows on a 4' bush. It is recommended as a cut flower.
A newer dahlia, introduced in 2009. This dahlia blooms to 9” and is a beautiful creamy white. It is a cousin of the incredible Vassio Meggos dahlia. The petals fold back to the stem and blooms are held at a 45-degree angle on the 4 1/2' plant. Betty loves to add this variety to her collection as it gets great responses from her clients.
Betty loves this dahlia as it is great in her garden or landscaping because of it's wonderful plant habit. The 3' bush is lush and compact with the much-desired black foliage. It produces beautiful 4" dark red blooms that make a stunning contrast to the dark stems and leaves. This plant produces lots of blooms with enough stem length to cut and the foliage is gorgeous in arrangements.

This dahlia grows on a 4' bush and produces loads of blooms with good, strong stems for cutting. They have a base color of soft pale lavender, with a deeper purple in the center. The flower has good holding qualities and will be beautiful with deep toned flowers as an accent. Betty likes using this dahlia as a solo presentation as it has a great impression.
Betty expresses “Don't Miss this one!” These giant 12" - 14" rich rosy purple blooms are magnificent! It blooms fairly late in the season and worth the wait. It’s a sure winner in its class.
