Award-Winning Plants

Each year, the Perennial Plant Association chooses one perennial as its annual Perennial Plant of the Year™. This year, Asclepias Tuberous also known as Butterfly Weed was selected for many reasons. This plant is far from a weed but a staple to the survival of monarchs. The bright orange flowers provide nectar for monarchs and the leaves provide food for caterpillars. It's not only great for butterflies, but for other pollinators as well. Butterfly Weed is deer resistant and thrives in sunny, dry locations. Plant with Black Eyed Susans, Echinacea and Ornamental Grasses for a truly beautiful combination.

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).
