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).

Planting Guides

Helianthemum (Rock Rose or Sunrose) are a showy genus of evergreen perennials native to the Old World (Europe and western Asia).

Preferred growing conditions:

  • Plant in infertile (lean), fast-draining soils. They particularly like alkaline limestone soils. Not suitable for clay soils. 
  • Enjoys full sun to partial shade exposure.
  • Water transplants regularly for the first growing season and provide drier conditions once established.
  • Helianthemum are profuse bloomers that don't require deadheading.
  • Fertilize lightly in the fall with a half and half mix of Yum Yum Mix and good quality compost applied as a top dressing around the plant.

Special Comments:

  • Helianthemum do best with afternoon shade in the western US to protect the evergreen foliage from being scorched by bright winter sun.
  • In winter, cover with evergreen boughs to provide shade and protection from drying winter winds.
  • Shear lightly after flowering is finished to encourage new growth and maintain a tidy habit.
