The American Dahlia Society's Derrill W. Hart Medal is
awarded annually to varieties scoring highest in accredited
Trial Gardens located across the United States and Canada
during the previous growing season.  Only seven Hart
medals are awarded each year and two have been won by
PDS originations: "Allen’s Country Roads," an A size (Large)
red incurved cactus, originated by Allen Manuel.  This is
Allen's third consecutive Hart medal, previously winning with
"Allen's Blackbeard" and "Allen's Arctic Fox." My Forever, an
orange waterlily, originated by Nicholas Gitts of Swan Island
Dahlias.  This is Nick's second consecutive Hart medal
following last year's win with "Dancing Queen," a pink stellar
form dahlia. It is very quite the feather in the caps of these
local hybridizers to have won in consecutive years.

Important Message

Please inform the membership that we
need to cancel the tuber packing event
at Swan Island for early April and the PDS
meeting at Oaks Park on Tuesday, April
14th.  It is unknown if we will still pack
tubers late in April for the Spring Garden
Fair on May 2-3
(which may or may not be held or
rescheduled).  PDS members will need
to remain flexible as events unfold.  
Everyone please stay healthy and utilize
best practices to protect all
around you.
