What is this To help gardeners understand which plants will grow well for them, the entire USA has been segmented into ‘Plant Hardiness Zones’.

Plant rare and natural beauty in shaded or woodland settings

Woodland wildflowers are ideal for shady, wooded areas where they will often spread and multiply if allowed. Most are long-lasting spring bloomers, and many offer interesting foliage that holds steady throughout the growing season. Often hard to find, woodland wildflowers can be colorful, showy, and unique additions to the landscape. Use them to add unexpected charm, or to create a full and lush carpet of green underneath a canopy of trees.
