Comments about High Country Gardens Zauschneria canum v. latifolium Northfork Coral:
Order this 2 Coral ones and 3 Orange Carpet in the deep pots (supposed to contain well rooted plants), closed up in plastic bags. 2 were DOA, and all were laying on their sides in the delivery box, with lots of soil out of the pot and into the bags. The box wasn't full and the pots had slid around withing the box, spilling the soil as a result.
1 plant was indeed large and well rooted. The others where the soil had spilled out, were actually little plug plants still in their degradible plug starter, so there were no extensive roots to hold in the soil. It was no wonder they died.

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).
