I love Dahlias, but so do the deer in my area (live 40 miles east of Atlanta, GA). As soon as they emerge from the ground in the spring, the deer snip them off or completely pull the plant out of the ground and I never even get to see them bloom. So if you have deer in your area, I wouldn't invest a lot of $$ in this plant.
