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

2-4" tall x 12-18" wide Violet Pinwheels Phlox PPAF is a garden knockout with its notched perky purple flowers with upturned petals. Long blooming and fragrant, it will wake up your garden in early spring and flower from 4 to 6 weeks. Low mounds of dark green needle-like foliage, that is soft to the touch, slowly spread to form mounds of 18" in three years. Plant ‘Violet Pinwheels’ in well-drained, compost enriched garden soil in a sunny to light shade spot. Good drainage is essential for thriving plants. Deer resistant and a pollinator favorite. Plant ‘Violet Pinwheels’ in a rock garden or at a path’s edge. It can accompany many of spring’s bulbs such as Hyacinth, Daffodils, and Tulips. Try planting a flowing area between rocks and create your own “river of bloom.” It will bloom all spring and give you a velvety green river the rest of the year.
