Comments about American Meadows Prairie Mallow Candy Girl:

Unfortunately, only one of these survived, but your customer service dept credited me for the lost plants. They were quite small and somewhat flimsy and it appears they are somewhat difficult to get settled in. I will try again with them as they are rather attractive plants

Q & A

Plant With These:

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).
