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
5-6' tall x 18" wide (seed propagated). Grow 'Llano' for its large mature size, vigor, and killer blue foliage. In fall, enjoy its showy, bronze-colored seed heads. Indiangrass foliage is used as larval food by butterflies. Wild turkey and prairie birds eat its seeds and use its foliage for cover. Originally released by New Mexico's Los Lunas USDA-NRCS Plant Materials Center in 1963, it was re-introduced just a few years ago. The original seed collection was made near Clovis, NM.
