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

8-12" tall x 10-12" wide. Easy to naturalize, low-care ‘Blue Moon’ Woodland Phlox shimmers with lilac-blue blooms for a month in early-to-mid spring. With intoxicating fragrance, this lovely native plant provides valuable early season nectar for hummingbirds, swallowtail butterflies, and other pollinators. ‘Blue Moon’ flourishes in bright shade with moist, rich, well-drained soil. Plant ‘Blue Moon’ with spring blooming bulbs – its foliage will offer support and hide the any wilting leaves on neighboring bulbs. It gradually multiplies by rhizomes and spreading stems that root at the nodes. To deter spreading, simply cut back the flowers as they fade and keep the plant trimmed up. The foliage is burgundy in winter, providing another season of interest.


Creeping Phlox is a favorite perennial groundcover in all growing regions. Cold hardy and heat tolerant, it creates a colorful carpet of low-growing, cheerful blooms that appear each spring atop a deep green mat of evergreen foliage. A rapid spreader, Creeping Phlox is masterful at filling spaces in between trees, rolling down gentle slopes or steep banks, and covering areas that are hard to care for with its solid swath of color. Very dependable and tolerant of many soil types. Deer resistant.
