USDA Plant Hardiness Zones

To help gardeners understand which plants will grow well for them, the entire USA has been segmented into ‘Plant Hardiness Zones’. Knowing your zone number is helpful when shopping for plants because:

  • Cold-area gardeners can avoid buying plants that simply won’t survive their lowest winter temperatures.
  • Warm-area gardeners can steer clear of plants that need a period of cold weather in order to bloom again.

Plant Information

Spectacular Batik represents a new technique in iris hybridizing, featuring a splash effect on all petals of a second color. Batiks deep purple with white splashes looks like a luscious blueberry sundae.

Growing Bearded Irises These majestic flowers are surprisingly easy to grow, and actually require less attention than almost any other garden flowers. Your iris roots will arrive with the foliage "trimmed" from this spring's growth. You'll find the "root" is not really a bulb, but what is called a "rhizome"--an irregularly shaped bulbous root that grows at a right angle from the foliage. Leave the trimmed foliage as it is, and simply bury the rhizome with the top of it showing through the soil surface. Bearded irises grow best with the tops of their rhizomes exposed.

Next spring, new foliage and the flower spikes will sprout strongly from the rhizome. What's more, next summer, you'll notice the rhizome multiplying for even more flowers as years go by.

                Oh my gosh! These are so beautiful! I love Irises and these are gorgeous! They make a beautiful splash of color in my garden and I love to cut them and bring them in to enjoy in my home. The cut flowers do not last long but I don't mind. This is a very unique color and I and so pleased with the rhizomes I received. Very healthy and a good size. I recommend these Irises for your garden or patio container.

                  The splashy color of this iris got many comments. It was beautiful. I'm looking forward to it blooming again this spring.

                  Q & A

                  Plant With These:

                  USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

                  To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

                  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
                  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

                  Find Your Planting Zone:
