I'm a fairly new garderner but have learnt quite quickly that some garden centres and retailers will label things as 'hardy' when they're not. I've bought Dahlias when the label has stated it, even though when I've looked it up they've needed to be lifted and stored over winter.
The best thing to do with all your new plants is to get online when you bring them home and read up about what care they will need. And of course take in to consideration that winter will inevitably kill off some plants regardless.
