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

Ever since the Middle Ages, Chamomile Tea has been a worldwide favorite, often used as a relaxation herb. (It's also the national flower of Russia.)

The little white daisy-like flowers make your herb garden beautiful and the scent is even better. Also, chamomile is great for soap-making.

Chamomile forms a bushy plant with very attractive fern-like foliage. The tea is made from drying the flowers when in full bloom. (See below.)

When and Where to Plant: Sow seeds in sandy, well-drained soil, with a little organic matter, in full sun or light shade, as soon as soil can be worked in the Spring. Rich soil will cause poor flower production.
Care: Keep well drained. Keep soil weed free and moist, but not soggy.
Harvesting: Pick flowers in full bloom, on a sunny day. Spread them to dry on a cloth or screen in the sun. Remove leaf and stem pieces. Store in an airtight container in a cool dry place.

    Comments about American Meadows Chamomile Seeds:

    I tried sprouting these in an container outside in the winter, and believe it or not, it didn't take. Then I started it (later) inside an old plastic egg carton under a garage light, and what do you know? It sprouted. The seeds are extremely small so small they slipped out of the packet after I resealed it, but I know the company can't change the seed size, so great over all.

    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).
