    Comments about High Country Gardens Phlox grayi Shades of Pink:

    Doing just what you said it would! The spreading was slower than I would have liked this spring season (2015), probably due to an extraordinarily wet spring here in Denver. Despite the excess moisture, this little plant is still doing well. Spunky little plant!

    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).
