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
12-18" tall x 36" wide. This versatile native evergreen shrub is a great plant in so many ways. An early to mid-spring bloomer, it perfumes the garden with a profuse display of fragrant bright yellow flowers that set attractive purple berries ripening by fall. Use it as a permanent, long lived groundcover under trees and large shrubs where its shiny evergreen foliage provides year round interest. This is an essential species for providing native bee species with pollen and nectar. Grown from seed collected in Montana. Most soils including clay.
