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
Like perennial blue flax, annual scarlet flax seed is shiny, a clue to the fact that flax seed is used to produce linseed oil. This species, with brilliant red petals often edged in black, is a close relative of the flax used to produce linen. (Note both “linen” and “linseed” derive from botanical name, Linum.) See related species, Blue Flax, Linum perenne lewisii.
