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 proven mixture offers full flower color and a great spread of species for places with little rainfall, or those areas that are difficult to water. Like any seed, this drought-tolerant mix requires moisture to sprout, but is quite self-sufficient once growth begins.

This premium mix includes 25 wildflowers: 14 annuals for first-year color. Plus 11 perennials/biennials for second and successive years’ bloom.
