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).

Lobelia is perfect for moist areas in sun or shade

Cardinal flower also known as Lobelia are the hybrids of the wild lobelia most botanists call "America's most vivid wildflower." It lights up moist spots during mid-summer in sun and shade. The tall spires of color add great interest in the garden when most big bloom is finished.
