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
If there were a beauty contest for these plants, this is the clear winner, at least in the judgement of most gardeners. This is beautiful American Maidenhair, a delicate but tough native of woods all the way from Canada to Georgia. In early spring, fine black stems reach high, and then suddenly unfurl into flat tray-like hands of delicate fronds, arrayed in a perfect circle. All Maidenhair asks is a moist shady spot and plenty of rich wood soil. It's magnificent with Trillium and other spring flowers.
