    Only needed a little extra care when first transplanted last fall. One of the plants even put out a small flower bud. The plants are already up and growing this spring.

      Every plant I've received has been great. Because I live in Illinois with alkaline soil I appreciate the variety of plants suitable for my conditions. I have been doing prairie restoration for a number of years and many of the plants fit right in, with the occasional more exotic beauty added for oomph.

            These are great quality plants. They started as small 5 inch plants last year, and now they are 15 to 18 inches high and spread about 18 inches.

            Beautiful flowers!

              I planted two of these last fall. They both bloomed last year, and made it through a rough winter. This spring, they are starting out great. They all have blooms on them already.

                I live at an altitude of 7500' in South Central Colorado where we have little moisture. The dirt Is hard with a lot of clay, sand and an amazing number of rocks. Digging in the ground is difficult and planting is difficult. In spite of this, these drawbacks, I planted the Galliardias which are thriving and spreadIng making a beautiful corner display of color. I have not provided any supplemental watering after their first full year. These are definitely easy to grow and I have 't had any deer or rabbits bother with the.

                  Q & A

                  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).

                  Find Your Planting Zone:

                  Enter your Zip Code to find your USDA Planting Zone
