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
3-4' x 3-4' wide. One of our favorites with its fine-textured gray foliage, Sand Sage is a small growing shrub that tolerates challenging growing conditions with lots of heat, sun, and drought. It's a very effective background plant in the xeriscape providing a dramatic backdrop of other perennials and ornamental grasses. Rarely offered, our strain of Artemisia filifolia is exceptionally cold hardy originating from a population in northeastern Colorado.
