Comments about High Country Gardens Erigeron speciosus Darkest of All:
I'm at 3500' elevation in AZ. I love the wildflower called spreading fleabane that grows all over my yard and had to try this. It also had to take full sun, temps a few days over 100 deg F and take watering near the grass 3 times per week. It passed all tests and near time to flower now. Can't wait to see them for the 1st time!

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).
