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
(38-42" tall x 12-24" wide) 'Blueberry Bliss' Bearded Iris brings mid-spring awake with velvet flowers of indigo blue. Standing at 38-42" tall, 'Blueberry Bliss' offers prolific blooms, growing 3-4 branches, each bearing 8-10 buds with large flowers 6" across, for a long season of bloom. The fan-shaped linear foliage also adds dramatic interest to the garden all season long. Grow extra for stunning cut flowers. Lasting 3-7 days, harvest when buds have fully emerged and are showing color. A winner of the 2009 Merit Award, 'Blueberry Bliss' is easy-to-grow and resistant to deer and rabbits. Especially suited to bumblebees who use the beards as runways leading to nectar and pollen, it also attracts other native pollinators. Plant them in a sunny spot in garden soil that drains well. Keep soil moist as the plant establishes, thereafter it is a durable, reliable, drought-tolerant perennial. Naturalizes well for increasing flowers each year.
