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?

Have you heard? Many honey bees, our plants' life-giving pollinators, seem to be disappearing! In fact, about 1/3 of our honey bees nationwide have disappeared in just the last few years. Scientists have been concerned about this for some time, but recently the problem seems to be increasing, and it is developing into a real environmental crisis. After all, the bees pollinate almost all our food crops and flowers, so without them, plants can't form seed and propagate themselves!
Read all about the Honey Bee crisis here.

That's why we've created this special mixture you can plant to be part of the solution. It's packed with honey bee friendly long-blooming flowers and super-colorful quick-bloom flowers to make the bees work a little easier, and to reduce stress on our already-stressed hives.

This mixture contains 19 wildflowers, 12 annuals for first-year color, plus 7 perennials for second and successive years' bloom. See full flower list below.
