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 a flower that looks a lot like a large black-eyed susan, the echinaceas have always been stars in plains plantings. They are tough, great for cutting, and some of our most beautiful native wildflowers. Once plants with their dark green, deeply-veined leaves are established, echinacea can be one of the most important colormakers in a mature meadow in midseason. But today, these flowers have even further importance. Under its botanical genus name, Echinacea, it has gained worldwide popularity as the No. 1 herbal medicinal. Long a favorite of Native Americans in treating snakebite, echinacea today is used in tablet and other forms to ward off colds and flus, and even to support the immune system. Millions of Americans now take pills or potions containing echinacea daily. (Medicine is made from all parts of the plant, but most important are the thick black rootstocks, which are ground up for processing.) The "Pale Coneflower" is the top species used in medicines, but the more common "Purple Coneflower" is used as well.

For the darker-hued "Purple Coneflower", see Echinacea purpurea.
