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
Growing Hyacinths: One of the most powerfully fragrant blooms in the flower kingdom is the famous Dutch Hyacinth, the result of hundreds of years of hybridizing a lovely wildflower from Turkey. Their fabulous, colorful blooms bring a sweet fragrance to the mid-spring garden, pairing well with almost any other spring flowers. Plant your hyacinth bulbs close together for a dramatic display, either in groups of one color or a mix of several shades. Hyacinths must have good drainage, so be sure to plant them where they will never be in standing water. With some shade, the flowers will last longer than in full sun. Hyacinths grow well in flowerpots and can be forced indoors for springtime decor.
