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
(24-36" high x 24-36" wide) Tall clusters of ochre yellow flowers make Showy Goldenrod a beacon for pollinators, perfectly complementing the Coneflowers, Sedums, Asters, and Joe Pye Weed that often bloom nearby. Alas, poor Goldenrod has been wrongly accused of causing hay fever or allergies, which are in fact instigated by the lightweight, wind-blown pollen of grasses, trees, and certain perennials such as ragweed that bloom in a similar season. Goldenrod, on the other hand, produces heavy, sticky pollen and relies on pollinators to move the pollen from flower to flower. Rugged and easy to grow, goldenrod spreads by underground rhizomes to form a large, long-lived stand. Plant it in a spot in full sun and well-drained soil, where this deer-resistant native  has room to spread. Tolerates clay soils. Hardy in zones 3-8.
