Default Dahlias in Containers

I have just started some large dahlia tubers, and I'm trying to figure out where I should put them. My raised beds are only two feet wide and about 8 inches deep, not big enough for these monsters I thought.

I have several containers 15" deep and 24" across, would I be able to plant one tuber per container? I have been scouring the internet for hours but all the information out there seems to be for smaller cultivars. The varieties I bought will be 4' high and the blooms are 11" across or so. I have a sturdy support system but I want to make sure they have all the space they need for proper development.

Good plan? Or should I find some other way of planting them?
