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

(3-4" tall x 2" wide) The earliest of spring's flowers, Yellow & Purple Snow Crocus Mix will gladden the gardener's spirits with plucky rich purple and golden yellow color before other flowers appear. The small cup-shaped blooms are best viewed in sweeps of color, so plant them in masses where they will show off and multiply over the years to great visual effect. Snow Crocuses open wide in the sun and close up on rainy days and at night. Easy to grow, plant the bulbs in well-drained soil 3-5" deep, where they will receive at least 6 hours of sun per day. Lovely along walks, around trees, nestled in rock gardens, and under shrubs. Plant with Snowdrop (Galanthus) and Dwarf Iris (Iris reticulata). Deer, squirrel, and rabbit resistant.
