Plant Delights says zones 7-9, which seems to X me out, too, although I
might try it one of these years. But it also says it doesn't bloom for
them--and that they grow it for its "tropical" foliage.

VB lists this as zone 8-10 but that is the rating for all the dahlias and they do bloom. This is listed as 20-29' and bloom time Aug-frost which is the bloom time for their other dahlias. Is the foliage tropical looking or especially interesting? BTW, the price this year was 11.95, 2 for $23 or 4 for $42.
The height and bloom time sound suspicious. Either they're wrong or trying
to pull a fast one. I saw a group in a mass planting in a nursery east of
Sarasota one autumn; bushes well over 10' and purple-flowered.
