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
12-22" tall x 18-24" wide. Let Lenten Rose ‘Showtime Ruffles’ chase away winter’s blues. Beautiful dark green foliage is evergreen, providing year around interest, but it’s the impossibly lush flowers that appear before any others in very early spring that make Hellebores one of the shade garden’s stars. Plant them in compost-enriched gardens where the soil is moist – under a tree, rhododendron, or on the edge of a shade border, where their early blooms will brighten the greys of winter. Easy-care, resistant to deer, voles, and rabbits, fertilize with compost and/or natural fertilizer when the first growth shows in spring. Keep soil evenly moist.
