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
12" tall x 10" wide. You may think of Gloxinia as an old-fashioned houseplant, but once you see its stunning, velvety blooms, you'll be changing your tune. Gloxinia is a great fit for modern homes and landscapes. Yes, you can grow this tuber as a houseplant, but outdoors, it also serves as a luscious summer annual. Tubers are planted 1 to 2 inches deep in well-drained soil and partial sun. Avoid full-on afternoon sun to keep the dark green rosette of soft, fuzzy leaves from turning crispy. If grown as a houseplant, water gloxinia from below by setting the pot in a tray or saucer of water for one hour. In the garden, irrigate at root level and do not overwater or allow the plants to completely dry out. After the long flowering period ends, gloxinia plants shift into a 7 to 9 week dormancy where the plants die completely back. During this time, move any potted gloxinia plants into a cool area and limit watering and avoid fertilization. Outdoors, the tubers must be lifted before a hard frost and brought indoors for the dormancy period where they can be kept in a box of peat moss in the garage. After the time of dormancy passes, pot or repot the tubers and begin to increase light levels and regularly water the plant to generate a new flush of beautiful blooms.
