USDA Plant Hardiness Zones

To help gardeners understand which plants will grow well for them, the entire USA has been segmented into ‘Plant Hardiness Zones’. Knowing your zone number is helpful when shopping for plants because:

  • Cold-area gardeners can avoid buying plants that simply won’t survive their lowest winter temperatures.
  • Warm-area gardeners can steer clear of plants that need a period of cold weather in order to bloom again.

Plant Information

Ranunculus blooms are not the easiest bulb flowers to grow, but who can resist? Hardy only to frost-free areas, they can be successfully grown almost anywhere, as long as you give them full sun and a fast-draining soil. Their size makes them perfect for containers – just make sure to have drain holes!

These beauties are treated as annuals, throwing dramatic flower after flower all summer long. If you've never seen them, imagine a multi-petaled oriental poppy with a straight stem or a huge double tulip in unforgettable coloring. They open like a big rose with many petals unfolding. Grow these and your neighbors will be amazed!

Many florists and gardeners cut Persian Buttercups as the centerpiece for a floral arrangement. Their straight stems, show-stopping blooms, and long vase life make them a knockout in the home, office, or as a thoughtful present to a friend!

    Comments about American Meadows Ranunculus Bulbs Tecolote Mix:

    I planted ranunculus somewhat late last spring in our zone 7 high desert area in ok-not-great soil without amendments.
    Gave a light straw mulch just to shade the new shoots a tiny bit from our scorching sun (we are at about 5000 ft elevation and the atmosphere is thin enough here to make the humidity very low and the sunlight very intense and drying).
    It was a very hot, long, dry summer. I watered daily, but the air was like a sponge sucking the moisture. All of the plants struggled mightily.
    The ranunculus never bloomed and then the leaves dried and crumbled. I thought they were all dead. :(
    Since I thought that they were dead, I didn't bother to mulch, feed, water, etc.
    But then this spring, after a wet and mild winter, the leaves returned! :)
    I've been watering daily since seeing those leaves.
    Finally, I saw a large, noticeable bud!!!! I looked more carefully and several of the plants were forming smaller buds!
    It took a full 9 days after noticing the first bud to finally get the first beautiful, red ranunculus flower. It was just a bud for a long time.
    So I guess my bottom line is that at least here in the southwest, ranunculus should be considered a somewhat risky experiment; a, "why not, I'll try it and see what happens."
    It maybe shouldn't be put in a spot where reliable performance is a requirement. In other words, perhaps it is best to interplant with other types of flowers or to put it somewhere where it won't be the only thing blooming to look at.
    This special flower seems to have a mind of it own.
    I hope that we continue to have zone 8 type winters instead of zone 7 type winters so that I might be able to continue to enjoy these for future springs!

    None of the Bulbs Came Up

    Comments about American Meadows Ranunculus Bulbs Tecolote Mix:

    I was so excited about getting these bulbs and planned to use them for photography purposes. But not one of the bulbs came up. I was so disappointed. Maybe others will have better luck with them than I did. I will not be replacing them.

    None of my ranunculus came up. I am going to try again, though, because I love ranunculus so much. Maybe next year!!

    Q & A

    Plant With These:

    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).
