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
36-48" tall x 24-30" wide. Bluebird Aster (Aster laevis) is a magnificent addition to the late season garden, has superb color and endless adaptability. Tolerant of full sun to light shade conditions, grow ‘Bluebird’ in any soil, from heavy clay to shallow, rocky soils. Mass along slopes for erosion control. Plants perform well in hot climates and have good drought tolerance. A long lived perennial ideal for woodland edges, meadows, and cottage gardens, plant alongside ornamental grasses and golden fall blooms. The golden-eyed blooms provide an excellent food source for fall-migrating monarchs. Foliage is mildew resistant and virtually pest free. Rich soils produce taller plants that can be cut back in late June to promote denser branching and flowering. Divide plants every two-three years as needed. Deer and rabbit resistant.
