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
Perennial – blooms appear in the second season and will reappear for many years to come. 48" tall. Tall Green Milkweed is similar in appearance to Whorled Milkweed, but is shorter and has more narrow foliage. This Milkweed re-seeds readily, making it quick to spread and extremely easy to naturalize an area. Like all Milkweed, this variety requires a cold period in order to germinate and is best planted in the fall or forced into cold stratification for spring seeding. As Milkweed is the sole host plant for the Monarch butterfly, you’ll enjoy plenty of butterflies coming to and from your garden along with a variety of bees and other beneficial bugs.
