        This is a wonderful plant to attract hummingbirds! I planted it last year and was worried about how it would survive it's first winter in zone 4. This spring which has been cold, cloudy & rainy, it is up & growing. A beautiful 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).
