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.

Looking for bold, fiery color all season long? Arizona Sun’s bold red blooms are edged in bright yellow, making a fun and bright statement from early summer to fall. This easy-to-grow perennial attracts goldfinches, butterflies, and other pollinators to the garden. It won the All-American Selections Award in 2005 and we aren’t surprised! This hardy perennial is deer resistant, drought tolerant, and thrives in almost any growing condition. Once established, this perennial requires little care and maintenance to come back year after year. Arizona Sun’s bright blooms also make for spectacular bouquets!

Plant Information

The Gaillardias are one of the great glories of American wildflowers, carpeting whole landscapes to the horizon in the plains states and the west. The natives are the famous yellow and white pinwheel bi-colors. In our wildflower seed department, we sell the much-loved annual, Indian Blanket, and the native perennial as well, G. aristata, often called Blanket Flower.

But hybridizers are always anxious to improve native plants, no matter how beautiful they may be. And in this case, they have. Goblin is one of the oldest, and still probably the most popular hybrid, with very large flowers and a long bloom season.

Many other newer hybrids emphasize one color or the other--the red or the yellow. And in very recent years, even the flower form has changed.

    Good grower and stayed blooming all summer. Cut flowers stayed fresh. Love the color variation. Planted along side of Arizona Red Shades to have variety. Would order again.

      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).
