Plant Information

Everyone Loves Veronicas. In perennial borders, they have always added great vertical interest with elegant spires of color. They bloom for a long time, and are a snap to grow. In addition, many of the species are native American wildflowers, making the hybrids at home in all our gardens. (Many call them by their other common name, Speedwell.) Peony Jan Van Leeuwen: A blooming bowl of summertime beauty, ‘Jan van Leeuwen’ is a classic Japanese peony that envelops the garden with a light, pleasant fragrance. Cup-shaped petals in snowy white surround a thickly mounded cushion of golden stamens. Like all herbaceous peonies, abundant green foliage stands strong throughout the season. Deer resistant and undemanding. (Paeonia ‘Jan van Leeuwen’)

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).
