Purchased several of these plants from Lowe's. They are very easy to grow. No problems with disease or insects. They have beautiful purple accented foliage and attract bees, butterflies and birds. I live in zone 7 and was not sure about overwintering this plant. I had grown them in several containers. I chose not to dig up the tubers but brought the pots indoors and stored them in a cool semi-dark location. In early March I had new foliage emerging. I divided the tubers, repotted them, and took them outside. It's the end of April and they already have flower buds. I have not been a dahlia fan in the past but this one has won me over.
