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
(48-60" tall) ‘Black Narcissus’ Cactus Dahlia has great style and substance with burgundy-red flowers that explode like fireworks in the garden, blooming from mid-summer to frost. Standing tall at 4-5 feet, plant ‘Black Narcissus’ in the back of a perennial bed, in a cutting garden, or along a patio where its plentiful flowers can be appreciated. Pinch back side buds to create larger flowers and deadhead regularly to keep flowers coming. Fantastic cut flowers too, they make lovely bouquets. Plant tubers in a sunny spot in average soil with good drainage. Don’t water until the first shoots appear, thereafter water to keep the soil moist. Plant a stake next to your Dahlia planting, as this tall variety will appreciate support as it grows and heavy flowers bloom. This easy-to-grow Dahlia is perennial in zones 8-10. In cooler zones, they may be dug and stored in a cool, dark place after the first frost, then re-planted the  following spring.
