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

20-24" tall x 4-8" wide. Ping Pong Allium hits a home run with fuzzy white globe-like flowers. Lighting up the early summer garden, the 2" flowers add a touch of whimsy to a flower bed, and a favorite stop for bumblebees, honeybees, butterflies and other native pollinators. Easy-care and pest resistant, just plant them in compost-enriched, well-drained soil in a full sun location. As Alliums are naturally resistant to animal browsing, some gardeners interplant Allium throughout the garden to protect other more vulnerable plants. At 20-24" tall, 'Ping Pong' is lovely planted with Delphinium, Veronica, Salvia, Peonies and other early summer bulbs. They make great cut flowers, or leave them in the garden where their gradually drying spheres contribute fantastic shapes. Touched by snow, they are even more magical! Let the green sword-shaped leaves wilt naturally before removing. Once established Allium is a drought-tolerant plant that will form clumps of beautiful flowers each year.
