We are Elkhorn's Dahlia Farm
"The Garden Song"
is our private gardens.
There is a display garden with
500 varieties of Dahlias here as well as a good 1000 other species of flowering plants within
3 1/2 acres of gardens mostly under the native oak tree forest. The gardens have naturalized over the years. They reseed
& multiply on their own.
The birds from Elkhorn Slough frequently visit here & there is a vast amount of native wild life, as well as butterflies in abundance.
This is where it's hard to not be happy,
& to forget the worries of life.
With the sound of acoustic music,
and the flowers in the gardens, along with our beautiful visitors,
When we are open it is worth the drive into the country to get here.
Colleen Sillver, is a BMI Songwriter & loves
to play music out in her gardens.
Every winter & early spring the gardens are upgraded with new visual areas. We have been creating the gardens for 20 years now.
We are looking forward to seeing our guest
return once again next summer- 2016.
P.S. We have seen 3 new
butterfly species floating around.
Our butterfly habitat theory is working! plant the host they will come!
May you have a beautiful holiday
this winter and much gratefulness
for all you have brought to us.
