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).

What's in this Mix?

This easy-to-grow collection features two annuals (Zinnia and Sunflower) and three perennials (Swamp Milkweed, Rue, and Showy Goldenrod) that offer up a source of food and habitat for giant swallowtail butterflies.

Perennial Rue blooms in late spring to early summer and acts a host plant for giant swallowtails. Swamp Milkweed offers up nectar-rich blooms in the spring, followed by Zinnia and Sunflower in the summer, and Showy Goldenrod offers a source of nectar all the way into the fall. This collection can be planted in the spring and fall, blooming in the first season and for years after, providing a long-lasting habitat for giant swallowtail butterflies.
