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

(34" tall x 18-24" wide) 'Variegated Gold' Bearded Iris is a garden favorite with three-season foliage striped in gold and green. The late-day sun lights up this striking foliage. Topped with graceful, fragrant, lavender-colored flowers, this elegant perennial is a perfect choice planted behind lower-growing Geranium or Catmint, or in front of Foxglove, Ornamental Grasses, and Peonies. For maximum color, plant in groups of 3, 12-24" apart. Plant rhizomes in enriched, freely draining soil, slightly above the soil line. Water well, then water as needed through flowering. Remove spent blooms, and when the stem is finished flowering, cut it off at the base. Over the years, Bearded Iris will multiply and become a low maintenance, deer and rabbit resistant start of the garden.
