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).

Liatris plants thrive in full sun under a variety of growing conditions, provided soils are well draining. Plants are drought tolerant once established. A low-maintenance beauty perfect for perennial borders and butterfly gardens where Liatris is a favorite of bees and butterflies. Allow seed heads to stand in autumn to provide seed for visiting songbirds. An excellent native selection for naturalizing in meadow plantings and tolerant of hot summers in the southern states.
