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

'Spring Carpet' is an early blooming perennial that makes a colorful carpet of flowers. The low-growing perennial thrives in hot, dry, sites and prefers gritty, sharply drained soil in the garden. It makes a nice groundcover along the edges of walks and paths. Native to Mediterranean Europe and North Africa, it’s also called Spanish Chamomile, since it has a similar appearance and habit. It will re-seed itself readily in favorable conditions and naturalize in gardens with poor soils. The plants are not bothered by browsing deer and rabbits. It makes a great companion plant for other early blooming perennials like blue-flowered groundcover Speedwells (Veronica), Wooly Creeping Thyme (Thymus), and Sea Thrift (Armeria). Winner of the Royal Horticultural Society’s Award of Garden Merit.
