Around here tree dahlias almost always get either blown over or frosted just before the flower but once every 20 years they do look nice.

I have them in flower at present. Easy to grow here from cuttings or tubers - which are like all dahlia tubers, but can be up to 25 cms long. Some get blown over, but most keep standing because of the big tuber feet.
