Jealous of my neighbor

A friend has been growing these, and it's time I got started. Such beautiful flowers.

Beautiful, but way larger plant than expected!

I am new to Dahlia growing...and, these are lovely plants. However, the plant is getting MUCH LARGER than I expected from the instructions on the packet. I have a single plant that is about 2 1/2 feet tall by 2 1/2 feet wide, with gorgeous Rose colored flowers blooming everywhere. It was planted with the most space to grow. The more crowded plants are still getting 1 to 1 1/2 feet wide. I am having a difficult time seeing how they could be planted 4 to 6 inches apart in a container...or even 8 inches apart in the garden. I am NOT COMPLAINING. I am just saying...might want to plan to give them space to do their thing!
