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).

Plant Information
Everyone loves this well-named little gem. It’s lack of tolerance for heat is not usually a big problem, since it is so short and blooms so early, the plants are finished blooming before the mid-summer heat kills them and ascending taller plants hide them. The sky-blue flowers are a delight in early seeded meadows, blooming while other wildflowers are still in small seedling stage. See related species, Five Spot, N. maculata.
