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

Crème Caramel Coreopsis (Coreopsis verticillata) (PP22,565) adds peachy-salmon tones and sunny yellow highlights to the garden. It’s a simply stunning plant that blooms continually through summer on top of lacy mounding foliage. Coreopsis spreads slowly, and in time, will naturalize to fill in the garden or meadow planting for a natural, lush appearance. The foliage of Coreopsis verticillata, or Threadleaf coreopsis, is finely dissected, making it an attractive filler for containers. Coreopsis verticillata is native to the eastern United states and Canada. Plant in a full sun location allowing good spacing between plants to help prevent mildew, and plant in average to dry soils. Pollinators will visit the blooms all summer. Leave seed heads in autumn for birds to harvest. Autumn Joy Sedum, and Echinacea make great companion plants.
