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

These brilliant orange or yellow daisies remind many people of the famous tropical Gerbera, so popular in the cutflower trade. With their world-renowned South African companion wildflowers (such as the flashy gazania and others), these plants create riotous color in their native range. All the South Africans are famous for “waiting for the water”, so don’t water your African Daisies too much.

*This species is identical to D. aurantiaca.

    Comments about American Meadows African Daisy Seeds:

    I live in the northwest and have a major problem with deer eating the flowers. I desire color, outside the evergreen trees that are every where. I received these along with other wild seeds a couple years ago. Of course, by the end of the season the deer and rabbits have eaten most of the garden. But to my joyful surprise, they didn't touch the African daisey. They bloom most of the summer. I like the fact, they do not take over a area and grow short, maybe a foot high! My black eyed Susans were munched up upon blooming, leaving me nothing but stems. The Africian daisey though not as tall nor as large - went untouched. This spring, African daisey's have been planted every where. I am planning on planting them in the southwest, our 2nd residence and see how they do in the desert heat. Should be good, coming from Africa, I will let you know. No deer there ... but the splash of color is just what I am looking for.

    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).
