HA -- Hardy Annual.
Hardy annuals can stand some frost, so sow in the open ground well before the last spring frost date, or, in warm winter areas, sow in fall.
HHA -- Half-hardy Annual.
Half-hardy annuals will survive a very light frost but are planted in the open at the last spring frost date or a little later. They can also be started indoors 6-8 weeks before the last spring frost.
TA -- Tender Annuals.
Tender annuals are warm weather plants that cannot withstand any frost and prefer warm nights. Tender annuals with long weeks to bloom (16-18+) should be started indoors 8-10 weeks before the last spring frost.
The color is not exactly orange. Took awhile for it to reach it's stride, is prettiest imo under taller plants. But it was the first if my salvias to bloom. You can compare the color to a 'red' salvia in the photo
Love this salvia!!! It's soo pretty in my container & the hummers like it!! The color went so well with all my other flowers and plants...I plan on buying a couple of these next year for sure!! <3!!
This is not at all orange like the picture....very disappointed!
Thank you so much for posting your review. Please let us know if the plant that you received was either dark magenta or pale pink. We want to make sure that you received the correct plant that you ordered! The new salvia 'Skyscraper Orange' is a bright, glowing coral-orange. In some conditions the flower can look a bit more pink, too.
