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
36-48" tall x 36-48" wide) The multi-flowered spires of Baptisia ‘Lunar Eclipse’ bud in light cream and slowly open through lilac to purple blue – creating a color sensation in the spring garden. A drought tolerant perennial native to the Midwest and Eastern United States, baptisia (also known as false indigo) is very long lived and has a long tap root, so plant this lunar lovely in a forever home within its first year. It prefers soil on the well-drained dry side, and in good conditions will slowly gain girth as the years go by. The glaucous, trifoliate leaves are lovely in the garden in their own right, and set off the blooms to perfection. In summer, large brown seed pods will form, which can sometimes cause the plant to flop, so either stake ‘Lunar Eclipse’ to preserve those pods or cut it back by a third after flowering. Like all baptisias, ‘Lunar Eclipse’ is deer resistant and a great fit for the native meadow.
