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).

Tips On Growing Berlandiera (Chocolate Flower)

Growing Berlandiera (Chocolate Flower) - An Old World species used as a small-scale ground cover.

Preferred growing conditions:

  • Plant in most any soil including clay with full sun conditions.
  • Mulch with gravel to encourage re-seeding. Otherwise, mulching is not needed.
  • Keep regularly watered for the first growing season to establish the roots. Infrequent but deep watering thereafter. Too much will cause the plant to get floppy.
  • Fertilize lightly in the fall with Yum Yum Mix/compost blend.

Special comments:

  • Deadhead to prolong blooming. Cut back hard in early to mid-spring to a height of 2 to 3 inches.
  • Plants have a tap root and should not be divided or transplanted once established.
