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

Downy Wood Mint, also known as Belphilia ciliata, attracts a variety of pollinators to the early summer garden with its dense, lavender/pink flowers that resemble Bee Balm. Although it’s a member of the mint family, this native variety is less aggressive and less fragrant than other mint varieties.

This native beauty grows to be about 12-12” tall and thrives in full sun to partial shade, tolerating average to dry soil. If planted in moist or overly shaded areas, Downy Wood Mint could get powdery mildew, so it's best to keep plants in a drier, well-ventilated area of the garden or meadow. We recommend planting this purple wildflower in rock gardens, perennial borders, wildflower meadows, cottage gardens and everything in between!
