    Comments about American Meadows Love in a Mist Seeds Miss Jekyll:

    we used these seeds in a flower garden where we distribute a large variety of flowers. They didn't seem to thrive as well as some others, but produced lovely colors. Perhaps they had too much competition from the taller varieties.

      Comments about American Meadows Love in a Mist Seeds Miss Jekyll:

      These are lovely flowers that we've grown in other states. After the flowers bloom, they form seed pods that add interest to your garden. Lovely pastel color. Very, very nice!

      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).
