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).

Details
2011 Plant Select Winner 8-12" tall x 12-18" wide (cutting propagated). A recent rediscovery of an old European selection that had languished in obscurity, this South African beauty is a winner with its huge white flowers held over an attractive mat of succulent, evergreen foliage. A sterile selection that doesn't set seeds, it puts its energy into many, many months of no-stop flowers beginning in mid-spring. 'Avalanche' is the most cold hardy, easily growable plant of the genus exhibiting superior vigor and longevity over previous selections like Purple Mountain and Lavender Mist. Not just another white daisy, 'Avalanche' is a unique perennial from the high elevations of the spectacular Drakensberg Mountains of South Africa. Good for Firescaping
