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

(38" tall x 12-24" wide) 'Deschutes' Bearded Iris has softly ruffled blue petals with purple-veining. At 38" tall, it’s a great fit for a perennial bed where it complements the shapes and colors of Peonies, Lupine, Allium, and Oriental Poppies. Place in a sunny spot in with free draining soil. Plant the rhizomes slightly above the soil line, and water well to keep moist as the plants establish. Cut or snap off spent blooms and cut finished stalks off at the base. Enjoy the vertical sword-like foliage as added garden texture. Deer and rabbit resistant.
