He started with just a few plants but now has almost 200 dahlias in his garden. One of his focus areas is on using dahlias as a landscaping element in his garden.

Wes has shown his dahlia blooms in a variety of settings, including local shows at Longwood Gardens, the Maryland State Fair, and national shows of the American Dahlia Society. His dahlias have won numerous awards, including the award for the best open centered bloom at the American Dahlia Society national show in 2018.
