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).

What's in this Mix?

This mixture is specially blended to handle the variable climates of the southwest, from long droughts to soaking rains. Results are particularly colorful featuring cosmos, lupine and red poppy, plus perennials including purple coneflower and gloriosa daisy. Sow as rainy season begins in mild areas; in the mountains, after spring frosts.

This mixture contains 26 wildflowers, 18 annuals for first-year color, plus 8 perennials or biennials for second and successive years' bloom.
