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

(36" tall x 12" wide) 'Valentino' Bearded Iris is striking with luscious scarlet standards (upright petals) that almost float over the darker red falls (lower petals). With lemon-yellow beards and throat, Valentino is sweetly fragrant and lovely planted where it can shine against the greens in a perennial bed. Create a focal point by planting a group where they can show off near an entry, along a deck, or any sunny spot that you like. Plant with Peonies, Delphinium, and Salvia for even more color. Plant the rhizomes in average soil with good drainage, just above the soil line and water as needed. Once established these hardy plants are drought-tolerant, and low maintenance. As flowers fade, trim spent blooms and cut finished stems close to the ground. The sword-shaped foliage will continue to add vertical interest. Deer and rabbit resistant.
