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

(10-14" tall) The Ultraviolet Bulb Collection combines two spring essentials for one dazzling display.  The color palette is one of pure harmony, creating a continuum of purple hues. 'Purple Prince' Tulip opens first, with gently scalloped petals topping strong stems that stand up to wind and rain. 'Blue Jacket' Hyacinth follows soon after, drawing pollinators to the garden.  Easy to grow in beds and borders and well-suited to life in a container, this pair provides a simple solution to creating unity between the garden and patio. Plant the bulbs en masse to create a dramatic display. Select a planting location with full to partial sun and well-draining soil. This pair is hardy in zones 3 through 8. Allow the foliage to mature and die down naturally after blooming to nourishes bulbs for next season's blooms. 

Our Ultraviolet Bulb Collection is roughly 3' x 3' if planted together and contains 37 plants:

1. Purple Prince Single Early Tulip - 25 Bulbs

2. Blue Jacket Hyacinth - 12 Bulbs

*Not all plants will be in bloom at the same time, as depicted on the illustration. Plants are subject to change due to availability. If we make substitutions, we feature plants with similar attributes suitable to the garden/collection design.
