dahlias in Florida

Does anyone know if I can grow dahlias in Central Florida? What is the soil like? What would the season be? Thanks

From what one grower in Gainsville told me, the dahlias start blooming Feb/march, slow down in midsummer, and take off again when it cools down in the fall/early winter. Effectively, there are two growing seasons in a given year.

There is no dahlia society in Florida, but Georgia's website has a list of the top heat-tolerant varieties and other goodies.
