Comments about High Country Gardens Sidalcea neomexicana:

In its first year, my sidalcea neomexicana bloomed with single stems. Pretty, but with its small flowers, and delicate appearance it got a bit lost. This year they are producing multiple stems and several offspring. I am expecting a greater show as their size increases. A lovely and graceful addition to a mixed planting.

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).
