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

The Red-Hot Bulb Collection provides gorgeous red flowers for your garden or bouquets from early summer to the first frost.  Beginning with bright Red Tiger Lilies in early summer these tall varieties look great in pots or tucked in among the dahlias in this collection.  Babylon Red Dinner Plate Dahlias has crimson red blooms up to 8” wide and grows to be 44-48” tall and will bloom mid-summer to frost.  For the backbone of this collection we recommend planting Traderhorn Gladiolus.  It will grow 48-60” tall and produces crimson red flowers accented with white throats mid-summer to frost. Whether you decide to plant these together in a garden, or in a collection of pots the Red-Hot Collection delivers a powerful punch of drama. The nerine lilies, gladiolus and dahlias are sensitive to cold and should be dug for storage over the winter in cooler climates. Re-set tender bulbs in spring after the threat of frost.

Our Red Hot Bulb Collection is roughly 3' x 4' and contains 23 plants:

1. 'Traderhorn' Gladiolus - 15 plants

2. 'Red' Tiger Lily - 3 plants

3. 'Red' Nerine Lily - 2 plants

4. 'Babylon Red' Dinner Plate Dahlia - 3 plants

*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.
