Comments about High Country Gardens Ipheion uniflorum Jessie:
Planted at front of beds bordering front gardens in what is a xeric garden here in the high desert of northeastern California. They're looking hardy and healthy and awaiting the blooms... Still early here... Thought they might bloom earlier to be with the daffodils for a beautiful 'wild' look of blues and yellows...still might make the later daffodils. It is their first year so we're in learning curve on these...

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).
