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.
Our daughter bought moonflower seeds from another source and in identical growing conditions her vines produced blooms with the beautiful perfume one expects from moonflowers. We purchased moonflower plants from Select Seeds and the blooms are completely odorless. Needless to say, they are a big disappointment!
Dear Lois, We are sorry to hear that your moonflowers were not very fragrant. Environmental conditions that typically go unnoticed, such as the presence of bacteria in the soil or air, can inhibit some flowers' ability to give off fragrance. Other factors include nutrient and carbon availability, as well as air quality or heavy precipitation in the area. Please let us know if you would like a credit or a replacement. We're here to help! ~Allison @ Select Seeds
