Comments about American Meadows Wand Flower Mix:

Planted last fall (early November 2016) most other bulbs coming up and growing nicely but haven't seen anything from these bulbs yet. I am taking into consideration that they are late summer/fall blooming plants and just come up a little later in the spring, so still watching for them to sprout.

Q & A

Plant With These:

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).
