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 Woodfern group is particularly useful to gardeners for two reasons. First, like Christmas Fern, this somewhat larger species (to 30") has evergreen fronds, with a rich blue-green color and ample substance to make them last right through frosts.

Secondly, the plant creates a particularly elegant effect, since unlike others, this ferns fronds rise like a bouquet from a small exposed rootstock that serves as a small trunk for the plant, which is formed more like a small tree fern or palm tree. Best of all, this one is not at all picky about soil, perfectly happy in any woodsy soil, acid or alkaline.
