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

(36" x 12-24" wide) 'Florentine Silk' Bearded Iris showers the mid to late spring garden in delicate shades of pink-peach and lavender. A winner of multiple American Iris Society awards, it is a profuse bloomer, blooming for weeks in good weather with large 6-8 inch flowers. Ideal planted with Oriental Poppies, Allium, and Delphinium, they grow to 36" tall and are lovely planted as a focal point near an entrance, deck, or pathway. Plant in a full sun location in well-drained garden soil with some aged compost or organic fertilizer. As the blooms fade, snap off or cut off the wilted flowers for a clean look. When all flowers on a stem are finished, cut the stem back at the base and enjoy the lovely vertical sword-shaped foliage. Easy-to-grow, 'Florentine Silk' is deer and rabbit resistant.
