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
Turk's Cap lilies are the ones that some long-ago botanist thought looked like turbans, the headgear of the Turks. It means the blooms face downward like large bells, and each petal tip curves back as on a "turk's cap." Native from New England all the way to Florida, and west to Illinois, the American Turk's Cap is not common, so if you can cultivate it in your wild garden, it will be special. (the bulbs were cooked for soups by the early Indians.)

Remember, you are planting seeds, and they will take a year or more to make a bulb, and then the tall stem, buds and blooms can form, so be patient with your "Turk's Cap Lily."
