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
Gibson's Scarlet one-ups most of the other Potentilla hybrids with its red red flowers. Also, the foliage is particularly beautiful in deep green.

The beautiful Potentillas (or Cinquefoils) are a great group of color makers for perennial borders. They're small bushy (only about 18" tall) members of the rose family, and if you look closely, you'll see the five-petaled blooms resemble a small wild rose. Even though these are herbaceous perennials, their growth habit is somewhat shrub-like, with semi-woody stems. This makes them tough plants that are loved by many gardeners. Also, romantics like the fact that the flower petals are perfect hearts.
