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

Mexican Sunflowers are not a true sunflower but instead a relative of sunflowers and zinnias.  The tall 40-60" zinnia like flowers will attract bees, butterflies and hummingbirds.  Plant them in a sunny spot in the meadow or back border of your garden and they will bloom that season. Try dead-heading spent blooms to encourage a longer bloom time. If done correctly, Mexican Sunflowers can bloom from June to frost. A lovely addition to any meadow or garden.
