Comments about High Country Gardens Physostegia virginiana Crystal Peak White:
I bought two of these last year for my new house, and also had a couple in the garden at my old house. They do great, even in my heavy clay soil. They bloom profusely and the bees seem to love them. I've had them in full sun and in part shade. The ones in full sun got a little bigger, but they flourished in both spots.

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).
