Dahlia Cold Tolerance

Gracious! After all this heat we've been having, it is supposed to go down to 40-45 the next few evenings. My dahlias are just really getting going - is this too cold for them? I don't know if I have a blanket large enough, nor how I'd actually throw it over them all!

Anna I've had 45-46 some mornings here already, enough to see my breath. The dahlias won't mind cool weather unless it freezes.
