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).

Plant Information
18-24" tall x 9-12" wide. An abundance of blooms tops the branched stems of Cherry Caramel Phlox (Phlox drummondii). Petals emerge bone-white and shift to vanilla and caramel colors with age against the dark pink eye for a one of a kind display in mixed beds and borders. Plant along walkways or in patio pots where you can enjoy the delightful lilac-like fragrance. A lovely cut flower, harvest stems when one-third to one-half of the flowers are open. Cherry Caramel Phlox is easy to grow and blooms quickly in the garden. Plant in a rich, well-drained soil in full sun. Plants benefit from filtered afternoon shade in hot climates. Provide even moisture for optimum performance. Deadheading will prolong bloom period. The annual plants can reseed under ideal conditions, so allow some spent blooms to remain if self-sowing is desired.
