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
One of our showiest ornamental grasses, Dwarf Pampas Grass (Cortaderia Pumila) blooms in mid-summer with big, fluffy pure white, sterile (non-seed producing) plumes. This Argentinian native grass is outstanding as a specimen perennial or planted in linear beds along walls and fences. Tough and trouble-free, it is non-reseeding and safe to plant in the Mid-Atlantic states and other areas where regular pampas grass will spread.

Flat of 9 plants will cover 27-36 square feet when planted together
