      from Huntsvillle, AL

      Verified Reviewer

      Comments about American Meadows Solomon's Plume Seeds:

      I read on the internet that the seeds sprout slowly and require a lengthy stratification period to help guarantee successful germination. I planted them outside in a pot in the fall but none of them germinated.

      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).
