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
Every bulb gardener knows that Snowdrops are the very earliest bulbs to bloom, and are tiny. Well, now they have a 'giant' companion, and these new beauties wait until most other bulbs are finished, and then raise their beautiful nodding white flowers on stems up to 16.' They look a bit like a tall version of Lily of the Valley...a great new addition to extend your bulb season. Easy and dependable perennial.
