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

'Prince Of Orange' Oriental Poppy (Papaver orientale 'Prince of Orange') has huge 5-inch diameter orange flowers with a black centers that make this sturdy perennial a late-spring standout in the garden. Easy-to-grow and long lived, 'Prince of Orange' Poppy thrives in a variety of soil types including clay. The plants go dormant in mid-summer, so It's best to combine them with other medium to large growing summer bloomers, like Jupiter's Beard (Centranthus), Daylilies (Hemerocallis) and Asters to fill in, as the poppy ‘disappears’ until re-growing its foliage in the fall.
