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.

Comments about American Meadows Canada Anemone Seeds:

Having read that this plant spreads and could become invasive, I decided that it was just what I needed at the edge of my sloping woods where it could trail off down the slope and through the woods. I was eager to start some seeds in peat pellets for transplanting. The results were extremely poor. I got three plants out of a packet of seeds. American Meadows stood by its product guarantee and replaced the packet, later providing instructions for cold stratification. I cold stratified the replacement seeds according to instructions, but to no avail. I have 4 small plants in total. 3 are old enough that I am seeing C. anemone blooms for the first time during Spring 2013. It is quite lovely and reminds me of strawberry plant blooms. I am also seeing some "runners" on one plant. I presume that it is getting ready to spread, and I welcome it to "take charge" for I have planted these in an area where they can enjoy free reign of the heavily mulched shaded slope to help avoid erosion during spring rains. Perhaps just a few success seeds will end up okay after all. Time will tell.

I cannot honestly recommend this seed for people who expect good germination and superior results without a lot of work. Even the cold-stratification instructions did not work for me.

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).
