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

The Rainforest Retreat Bulb Collection is perfect for a tropical getaway on your own property or patio. An Upright Elephant Ear will dominate this collection with its height of 4-6 ft. and leaves that can grow up to 4-5 ft. across. Under the canopy of the large leafy elephant ear is the perfect place for many of the flowers in this collection to shine. Best Gold Calla Lilies add vibrant color and their foliage will provide season-long interest. The fragrant and exotic white Peruvian Daffodils are amazing as cut flowers for bouquets. The Gloriosa Lily looks like a burst of flames with its red and yellow flowers. Winding its way up a wall or trellis, the Gloriosa Lily acts as a great backdrop or way to create privacy for your oasis. Gardeners in cold regions will want to lift the bulbs at the end of the season and store for the winter. Bring the Elephant Ear indoors as a potted plant and place in a warm sunny spot for the winter.

Our Rainforest Bulb Collection is roughly 4' x 5' if planted together and contains 8 plants:

1. Upright Elephant Ears (Alocasia) - 1 plant

2. Gloriosa Lily Rothschildiana - 3 plants

3. Peruvian Daffodil (Hymenocallis) - 3 plants

4. 'Best Gold' Calla Lily (Zantedeschia) - 1 Plant

*Not all plants will be in bloom at the same time, as depicted on the illustration. Plants are subject to change due to availability. If we make substitutions, we feature plants with similar attributes suitable to the garden/collection design.
