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
This close relative of the carnation is one of the wildflowers that was taken directly into gardens from the wild. Of course, there are also hundreds of hybrids made from this flower and others in the “pink” family. The wide range of colors and bi-colored blooms make this a truly spectacular wildflower in meadows. A big favorite.
