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
A perennial tuber, and relative of African violets, gloxinia can be grown as a houseplant that is taken outdoors in the summer, or as a lush long-blooming annual. As a houseplant they need bright indoor light with no direct sunlight, and make sure to keep them moist. In the garden, avoid full-on afternoon sun to keep the dark green rosette of soft, fuzzy leaves from turning crispy. After the long flowering period ends, gloxinia plants shift into a 7 to 9 week dormancy where the plants die completely back. During this time, move any potted gloxinia plants into a cool area and limit watering and fertilization. Outdoors, the tubers must be lifted before a hard frost and brought into a cool, dry place for the dormancy period.
