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).

Bring color into the shade garden with beautiful Astilbe

Astilbes are one of the top shade perennials for a colorful display under trees or in shady spots in the border. These neat perennial plants make lovely foliage, and in late spring, send up plume-like flowers in a host of rich glowing colors. Perennial astilbes come in various heights, so plant several levels for a multicolor perennial display.

Along with hostas, astilbes create permanent beds around trees, in front of shaded foundation plants, or in any other moist, shaded spots. As a bonus, they also add elegant plumes of color in any cutflower arrangement. Enjoy!
