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).

What's in this Mix?

This easy-to-grow collection features one annual (Zinnia) and four perennials (Common Milkweed, Showy Milkweed, Wild Bergamot, and Purple Coneflower) that offer up a source of food and habitat for the struggling monarch population.  

Two varieties of native Milkweed welcome monarchs back from Mexico in the spring and are crucial to the survival of the species, acting as a host plant for monarch butterflies to lay their eggs. Native Wild Bergamot blooms a gorgeous lavender color with a distinct fragrance and is a great source of pollen for Monarchs from mid- to late-summer. Zinnia and Purple Coneflower are garden favorites and their profuse, long-lasting blooms are a constant source for monarchs in the summer garden. This collection can be planted in the spring or the fall and will bloom the first year and years after, providing a long-lasting resource for monarchs.
