This dahlia has been such a trooper for us for several years. This year, it has gotten leggy and isn't blooming much, which indicates it needs dividing. But in past years it has bloomed like crazy from August to first frost (usually November here in Atlanta) and has survived abominable treatment. Last year we didn't have time to stake it, and it sprawled on the ground and bloomed.

The blossoms are lovely.
