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).

SunflowerWildflowers are great for attracting pollinators which are critical to our ecosystem.

Stop mowing your lawn and plant Wildflowers.  Mowing your lawn for 1 hour emits the same amount of pollutants as driving your car for 200 miles…Not good! 

Grow, don't mow!

    what do you have for southern Idaho.

      Hello Frank,

      I'd recommend taking a look at our Western Wildflower Mix: http://www.americanmeadows.com/wildflower-seeds/wildflower-mix/west-wildflower-seed-mix . This is a nice blend of annual and perennial wildflowers that would do very well in your Idaho climate. It will provide annual color in the first growing season and perennials for the second and successive seasons. It could be sown this fall or in spring.

      I hope this information helps and please let me know if I can be of further assistance!

      Thanks again and Happy Gardening!
