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
‘Snow Queen’ Hydrangea is a deciduous shrub native to North America that adds a colorful, easy-to-grow element to your yard or garden. Growing to 4-6 feet tall and 6-8 feet wide, it is tolerant of sun and drier conditions once established. Its flowers attract bees for pollen and nectar, and the long-lasting 8-inch conical blossoms will age to pink in fall. The dried blossoms make beautiful dried arrangements. Plant ‘Snow Queen’ in a full sun or partial sun location in fertile soil with good drainage. Water when the top 2” of soil is dry. If pruning is desired, cut back soon after flowering so that buds can form for the next season. An excellent choice for a mixed hedge border, or as an accent plant. Consider layering with Echinacea, Ornamental Grasses, Rudbeckia, and other Hydrangea for a cascade of color. Winner of the prestigious Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit.
