    Comments about High Country Gardens Scutellaria resinosa Smoky Hills:

    I planted this in my water-wise garden last year. It grew very fast and bloomed for a very long time. It weathered high heat in the summer and some almost frosty nights in winter. This is April and it is covered with blooms again. I enjoy it so much.

      Grew well as soon as I planted it. It is back this spring and looking vigorous. Can't wait until it blooms.

      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).
