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

Prairie Violet, or Viola pedatifida, thrives in dry and well-draining soil, making it a great drought-tolerant choice for low-water and low-maintenance plantings. Only 6” at maturity, this native wildflower is the perfect choice for dry borders or small space gardens. Prairie Violet is a sun-loving variety but will tolerate some shade in warmer climates.

This native groundcover will re-seed and naturalize (spread) each year. Bright green, clumping foliage offers up bright purple blooms in April to June, depending on your region. Prairie Violet is deer resistant and easy to grow.
