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

Monarch Butterflies need our help! Plant the Eastern Monarch Refuge Plant Collection in your garden to support endangered Monarch butterflies. As development across the country has reduced their natural habitat, gardeners can play an important role in helping their population rebound. How? By planting Milkweed (Asclepias), their host plant, which is essential for their survival. Milkweed leaves provide the food that Monarch caterpillars need to grow. Planting nectar plants that bloom all season helps to feed adult Monarch butterflies, fueling their long migrations each spring and fall. Milkweed, Joe Pye, Aster, and Bee Balm all have extended bloom times, to offer reliable nectar sourcesGood for average and loamy soil, most plants in this collection are suitable for moist soil as well. This garden is best for states east of the Rocky Mountains. (For more information about Monarch Butterflies, learn more in our article: Monarchs & Milkweed) 

The Eastern Monarch Refuge Plant Collection includes 6 plants, covering 40 square feet when planted together:
