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

'Red Dwarf' Joe-Pye-Weed (Eupatorium maculatum 'Dwarf Red') was selected for its short, compact size and large, showy, pink flower clusters. 'Red Dwarf' Joe Pye Weed is an outstanding European selection of our native Joe Pye weed.  The name is a bit of a misnomer, as "red" refers to the plant's dark burgundy-red stems that hold the flowers, not a description of the flowers themselves.  Never the less, this vigorous, mounding perennial is an outstanding part of the late summer garden with its superb flowers that attract multitudes of butterflies and native bees.  Leave standing over the winter as the flat-topped flower clusters provide winter interest capturing the snow to form a crowd of little white caps.
