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
With glossy green leaves and the familiar cluster of snow white flowers, often tinged with pink or purple, candytuft is another wildflower that was taken into garden centuries ago. It has a rich herbal history, and was considered a cure for rheumatism in colonial America. Candytuft is a member of the mustard family, thus the 4 petals per flower, and its use for centuries as a seasoning.
