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).

Anemones (or Windflower): A Colorful Sight

Also known as windflower, Anemones are colorful, delicate and unique, offering a variety of uses in almost any garden. Depending on the variety, they can bloom in the spring, summer, or fall, offering season-long interest of spectacular blooms.

Known for their small height, Anemones grow best in the front border of the garden or in containers. They are deer resistant and easy to grow, as long as you give them a little bit of shade and well-draining soil.  They multiply vigorously, so within years you’ll be happily dividing and re-locating or giving to a lucky gardening friend. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, ranging from double, full blooms to single, delicate flowers. View our entire selection here.


Anemone blooms are so unique and colorful, be sure to plant extras for cut bouquets. The colorful blooms are bold enough to be placed in a bud vase, or will make an extreme statement arranged together.

Gardeners love Anemones because they are:

  • - Deer Resistant
  • - A colorful groundcover
  • - Gorgeous cut flowers
  • - (Mostly) fragrant blooms
  • - Great for containers
  • - Low maintenance
  • - Grow in USDA Hardiness Zones 1-10
  • - Shade-tolerant
  • - Multiplying

Anemones exude such charm; they even catch the eye of famous poets! Emily Dickinson writes about the cheerful flower in her poem Summer for thee, grant I may be:

Summer for thee, grant I may be
When Summer days are flown!
Thy music still, when Whipporwill
And Oriole—are done!

For thee to bloom, I'll skip the tomb
And row my blossoms o'er!
Pray gather me—
Thy flower—forevermore!

    Hi Amanda,
    Thanks for the post! I had a tough time initially when I decided to grow Anemones, what I learnt while growing them is that these blooms don't grow properly, especially if you are growing them in a tank. These blooms don't like stagnant water around them instead require some water flow to grow properly.
