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?

The world-famous wildflowers of the Southwest are brought together to assure a wonderful native meadow from the Pacific coast inland through the deserts. Native annuals in the mix include two species of lupine, Indian Blanket, Desert Marigold, Blazing Star, Farewell to Spring, and more. Perennials include California poppy, of course, and Mexican Gold Poppy too, plus red Mexican Hat and two Evening Primroses, the yellow and the famous pink. Sow as rainy season begins in mild areas; in the mountains, after spring frosts.

This mixture contains 16 wildflowers, 10 annuals for first-year color, plus 6 perennials or biennials for second and successive years' bloom.
