When to plant dahlias in Maryland?

I'm curious, when is an ideal time to plant dahlias in Maryland? I've heard varying answers and I'm kinda confused as to when it would be the best. I bought some antique varieties and I'm wanting to make sure they do well, so if anything I'm being prudent. Any suggestions?

RE: When to plant dahlias in Maryland?

I am going to plant mine this weekend. I think the beginning of May is a perfect time since it is when you should plant other frost sensitive plants like tomatoes. It looks like the weather will be great this weekend so go ahead and plant them. Even if by some rare chance we still have a frost you can cover them.
