Erin Benzakein of Floret Farm shares her passion for a favorite flower that grows on her farm in Washington State’s Skagit Valley. “One thing I’ve learned when it comes to dahlias is that once you’ve been bitten by the bug, there’s no going back,” says Erin. “They have a strangely magical quality that somehow ends up taking over your life in the most fun and beautiful way.” In Floret Farm’s Discovering Dahlias (Chronicle Books, 2021), she takes a deep dive into the subject. The book is chock-full of step-by-step expert advice and captivating images with details for more than 350 of Erin’s favorites varieties.
