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

Agapanthus is an ancient plant with a handful of common names - African Lily, Lily of the Nile, Blue African Lily and The Flower of Love among them. Native to South Africa, this lovely perennial flower produces globe shaped blooms in violet-blue, each composed of several smaller, star-shaped flowers. Similar to ornamental onion (allium) blooms, but looser and softer.

This plant can take plenty of heat, and will tolerate some shade - but it must have plenty of moisture and should not be allowed to dry out. Otherwise easy to grow, and very resistant to pests and disease.
