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

Add perennial notes to your poppy collection with Censation™ Pink Perfection Oriental Poppy. In mid-spring, strong stems emerge from the center of softly dissected, hairy foliage. Large, 6-to-8-inch pink blossoms feature dramatic dark centers and black smudges at the base of the petals, which are serrated for added texture. Poppies are highly attractive to pollinating bees. Plant in dry to average soils, but ensure your poppy is well-watered in its first year. You’ll love the look of the seed heads after blooms have passed. Remove foliage only when it has fully died back to allow it to strengthen the plant for longer life in the garden.
