Ivan Bogdanov is the first serving President of the PMDS. His love for growing dahlias started less than 7 years ago with a few choice bulbs purchased from Swan Island Dahlias - the biggest grower in the US. His garden has since expanded to include a wide variety of US, UK, and Australian introductions all of which tested in the unique Cape Cod climate of Provincetown. Currently, he grows 75 plants and over 40 varieties. Among his favorites: Hollyhill Black Beauty, Clearview Daniel, and Kelsey Annie Joy.
