full sun?

I know this is a stupid question, but I was hoping someone could define how much sun is actually needed for Dahlias. I am growing some short border Dahlias that I would like to put on the East side of my house. Is sun for the first half of the day enough or should I find a new spot?
Thanks :)

RE: full sun?

That is the exact position mine are in every year,and they do wonderfully there.The very first Dahlia(dinnerplate) that I ever grew was planted there and I was told it wasn't enough sun.Well it grew over 4 feet tall and bloomed like crazy,it is the perfect spot.

RE: full sun?

Thanks Molly! I feel better now. Now I am just worried about the Fushias I planted in part sun. After I planted a ton of them, Ciscoe said to never plant them in direct sun.. Just my luck!
