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
4" tall (in flower) x 24" wide (cutting propagated). This plant was discovered growing on the rugged hills surrounding Tiffindell, South Africa's only alpine ski area. A vigorous grower with deep, water-seeking roots, 'Tiffindell Gold' has soft, one-inch high emerald green foliage and an impressive display of golden button-like flowers that illuminate the garden beginning in late spring. Deadheading extends the bloom season through the summer. This perennial is a wide spreading, low care groundcover whose stems root as they spread to make a weed-resistant sod. It is invaluable for carpeting large patches in perennial beds or as a grass replacement in low traffic areas. It even looks good in the winter as its foliage is evergreen. Plant 'Tiffindell Gold' in any well-drained soil.

Flat of 32 plants will cover 64 square feet when planted together
