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

Cornflowers are so easy to grow and are often some of the earliest annuals to bloom in the garden or meadow. World-famous “cornflower blue” is the bluest blue in the flower kingdom, and that makes this many people’s favorite flower. Easy to grow, quick to bloom, great for cutting. Strong seedlings have a “silvery” look in a seeded meadow. In fact, cornflower grows so well, it has become somewhat of a pest in some areas, most notably the Southeast. Birds love seed. American goldfinches (wild canaries), particularly, put on quite a show as they dive into fields of this flower when it is going to seed. This is the famous flower of many romantic legends, thus the name “Bachelor’s Button”. Young single girls wore the bloom as a signal of availability in Old England. It also always figures prominently in the Victorian "Language of Flowers"--of which there are several versions.
