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
16-26" tall x 24-36" wide. Ruby Frost Coreopsis (Tickseed) from the Hardy Jewel™Series adds vibrant heavy-blooming color to containers, borders, and cottage gardens. Perfect for naturalizing in drifts among meadow plantings or tucking along rock gardens. Coreopsis are native to North America and easy to grow on any well-drained soil in full sun. Plants thrive in poor soils and are drought tolerant once established. Avoid overwatering. Plants bloom over a long season from early summer through frost with regular deadheading. Simply shear back the top one-third of the plant after flowering to freshen foliage and ignite a fresh flurry of blooms. Divide every two to three years in spring as needed. Rugged and adaptable, plants are deer and pest-resistant.
