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?

A mix of 27 annuals and perennials. The Monarch Butterfly Wildflower Mix contains 4 different varieties of Milkweed that provide habitat and food for caterpillars, along with a blend of nectar-rich wildflowers that provide early-to-late season food for butterflies and other pollinators. This mixture thrives in any sunny spot in the garden and the first annuals bloom just weeks after planting, making this a great choice for both spring or fall seeding. Replace part of your lawn with pollinator-friendly wildflowers, create a designated pollinator wildflower patch, or plant this mix in large planters in your small space or container garden. The pollinator possibilities are endless!
