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
Spring-blooming bulbs are the best way to start the gardening season, with some bulbs even blooming when there is still snow on the ground. Plant these bulbs in fall, and choose bulbs with early-, mid-and late-spring bloom times for plenty of flowers until summer blooms take over. Early season blooms also supply a much-needed food source for bees and pollinators. Each flower in our selection of unique bulbs has its own plant superpower, be it uplifting fragrance, bold color, or eye-catching form to enhance and accent your garden. These delightful flowers will set your garden apart.
