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
24-36" tall x 18-24" wide. Aster ‘Frikartii Monch’, also known as Frikart’s Aster and Wonder of Staffa is one of the earliest-blooming asters to be found. A standout in border plantings and in the cottage garden, this light lavender-blue variety attracts a flurry of pollinator activity to its nectar-rich blooms. Healthy, deep-green foliage is quick-growing and resistant to disease, lending a sense of fullness to beds. Covered in flowers for much of the season, Frikartii Monch prefers full sun and average soil but will settle for part shade and a moister site. Winter hardy to zone 5.
