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 Northeast Pollinator Mix is carefully formulated with annual and perennial varieties to help a wide variety of pollinators in the Northeast region, including Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont and West Virginia. This mixture is also great for the Province of Quebec, Newfoundland, Labrador, PEI, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. The colorful, easy-to-grow wildflowers bloom from spring until frost, when many pollinators are on their migration journey and need nectar most.

This mixture contains 19 wildflowers, 8 annuals for first-year color, plus 11 perennials for second and successive years' bloom.
