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

It's easy to see how this wildflower got its common name. The flowers are arrayed on a tall stem, they are star shaped, and they're pointed straight down. The whole plant is handsome, with flowers ranging from white to pink, and it’s dependably perennial, even in the coldest climates.

Shooting Star seeds prefers moist, cold stratification. Mix the seed with damp sawdust, vermiculite or sand and place in a refrigerator at 32-36º F for 30 days. This will break seed dormancy and increase the germination rate. Moist stratification is not necessary when planting in the fall.
