      Comments about American Meadows Little Adder Hyssop:

      Use for adding color and filling in bare spots.Gets thick and crowds out weeds. Butterflies and bees love them. Dead heading helps it stay a large mass of beautiful blue flowers. Drought doesn't bother this plant, nor high temperatures and humidity. The large clump looks so attractive!

      Q & A

      Plant With These:

      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).
