DetailsHeterotheca jonesii (Creeping Goldenaster) is a fantastic native groundcover that grows to form an evergreen mat of tiny leaves, covered with a summer-long display of bright yellow aster-like flowers. Found in habitat in a limited area of southwestern UT, the plant has proven to be widely adaptable across the western US. This little plant makes a great companion for other taller, drought resistant native perennials, such as beardtongues and sages.

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).
