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).

Pollinators will Feast on the Delicate Blooms of Milkweed

Milkweed and Butterfly Weed, both members of the Asclepias family, are the sole food source for Monarch butterfly caterpillars. Planting a block of milkweed is the easiest way to help rebound the plummeting population of this beloved butterfly, but you might choose to plant it based on looks alone! With its saturated punch of color and constant line of visiting pollinators, this native plant has become immensely popular in perennial gardens nationwide. Choose flaming orange Butterfly Weed, the most drought tolerant of all the milkweeds, to thrive in your garden’s driest spots, or plant Swamp Milkweed in moister areas.
