Plant Information

This widely diverse group of plants includes common North American wildflowers plus a whole selection of unique hybrids. All of the flowering spurges insist on fast-draining soils and are dependably drought tolerant. Once happy, this is a carefree plant that adds color almost year round. The big yellow flowers appear in late spring through mid summer. Then with fall temperatures, all the foliage goes bright butter yellow for even more color.

        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).
