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
Apple Blossom’s light, star-shaped blooms create an elegant groundover in the spring garden. They prefer as much sun as possible and are deer resistant.

Creeping Phlox is a favorite for gardeners all across the country – they are ground-covering plants that bloom in a solid carpet in spring. Creeping Phlox also spreads rapidly, covering banks, spaces under tall trees, and other places where you want color. In one color, or as a rainbow, creeping phlox creates one of the most dependably perennial groundcovers you can plant.
