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).

What's in this Mix?

The Painted Lady Nectar Collection Nectar collection includes Hollyhocks, Liatris, Joe-Pye Weed, Ironweed and New England Aster to help attract, feed and provide breeding grounds for these gorgeous butterflies.

Native Ironweed blooms in mid to late summer and asks a host plant for painted ladies to lay their eggs. Hollyhock, a biennial, is a gorgeous blooming variety and also acts as a host plant for larvae. Native Joe-Pye Weed, Liatris, and New England Aster are nectar-rich food sources for painted ladies and bloom from summer into the fall. This long-lasting collection can be planted in the spring or the fall and starts blooming in the second season, providing a habitat for painted lady butterflies for years to come.
