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.
I ordered Asarina Wine plants in January to ship in May. I was sent a confirmation when the plants shipped and was not charged until they shipped. The plants arrived in a box and were contained in a protective plastic casing. Care was taken to cushion the plants at soil level with a shredded paper material. Upon arrival, the plants were in beautiful condition and larger than the same plant I have ordered from other sources in the past. Overall, I am very happy with the ordering process, shipping, packaging, and the plants themselves. I am in Zone 6 and I planted these in a large clay pot to trellis up the porch railing.
