Best Uses

    Comments about American Meadows Sunflower Lemon Queen:

    I selected this plant because the description indicated that it was easy to grow. I planted two of them in sunny spots where grass grows fairly well, but insects (that I was never able to observe) ate every leaf as fast as each leaf emerged. This is not a problem I have with any other perennial in my gardens.

    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).
