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
2005 Perennial Plant of the Year 8" tall x 18" wide. Dianthus 'Firewitch' is superb for both its gray-blue foliage and its bouquet of single hot-pink flowers. Blooming in late spring, we use 'Firewitch' Garden Pinks to mix with plants that have "gray" or "silver" foliage. Marrubium rotundifolia, Achillea (Yarrow) and various Lavenders are good companion plants. The non-green leaves of these companions help to cool down the intense flower color of Dianthus 'Firewitch' and provide beautiful contrasting foliage when the flowers are gone. More xeric than many Dianthus, 'Firewitch' likes a lean, well drained soil with plenty of sunshine. Deadhead after flowering in early to mid summer. Good for Firescaping (Cutting propagated)
