We have noted that dahlias are one of the rabbit resistant flowers (ornamental flowering plants) and you should not give them to these critters. However, this does not mean they will not be nibbled at all.

Rabbits feed on plants that are within their reach, which would mean their damage would only be low to the ground, while deer have a much higher reach. Many types of ornamental grasses make a good habitat for rabbits, but many won't eat the older, tough blades.
