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

'Ice Dance' Sedge is a nifty plant for adding texture to your shade garden. Unlike many ornamental grasses, 'Ice Dance' thrives in partial to full shade in moist to wet soils, making them a problem-solving plant for tricky spaces. The stiff, evergreen leaves are dark green in the center with white edges. It works well as a slow-growing groundcover, spreading underground via rhizomes to form a mat of evergreen foliage. 'Ice Dance' has few pest or disease problems. Performs best in partial shade. Trim plants back in late winter or early spring to encourage fresh new growth.
