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.

Did wonderful for me

Comments about American Meadows Black Eyed Susan Denver Daisy:

I realize that many prefer the more widely popular Goldstrum series but I have always been fascinated by this color montage. I received two plants last spring and had my doubts if in fact they would take hold especially with our hot summers here. But in line with the coneflowers planted, the Denver Daisies took off like crazy. Even with drought-like conditions this past summer they still weathered the summer heat. They tend to grow larger and more fuller with full sun, very little shade. I loved them so much I ordered another two plants for my garden this spring.

Very Poor Experience

Comments about American Meadows Black Eyed Susan Denver Daisy:

I want you to be aware that this order was not in good shape when I received it. The bare roots of the poppies had some shoots on top but they were black.
With the "Black Eyed Susan", at least 60% of the leaves were yellow and they were so root bound that they could be used for building blocks.
I have seen a lot of complaints about products people have received and how they were packed etc. I intend to log a comment on Dave's Garden myself about this order. I only wish I had seen the complaints before I ordered.

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).
