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
Gold Dew Tufted Hair Grass (Deschampsia cespitosa ‘Goldtau’) is a colorful, fine textured native grass loved for its profuse display of misty, golden flowers and attractive seed heads that hold through winter.  It grows and flowers best in cold climates and is not a good choice for the southern-most third of the US with hot, humid summers.  'Goldtau' is great for massing (large groups of the plant) and planted behind and around tall summer blooming perennials like Phlox paniculata, Joe Pye Weed (Eupatorium) and Bee Balm (Monarda).
