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

FlowerKisser™ Arizona Beauty Coyote Mint (Monardella) has flowers and foliage with a very minty scent when brushed or handled. This sweetly scented native groundcover has lavender-pink puffball shaped flowers that attract bees and butterflies. Collected by founder and chief horticulturist David Salman, this selection was found in the east-central mountains of Arizona, growing around and under Ponderosa pine. Normally this species is sub-alpine, but this lower elevation form (8,500 ft.) is much more growable at middle elevations throughout the western US. Give it some afternoon shade where day temperatures are hot. It makes a wonderful companion plant for other smaller growing perennials like Ornamental Oregano, Prairie Clover (Dalea purpureum) and Dark Violet Skullcap (Scutellaria).


Plants in the new FlowerKisser™ brand have been selected by High Country Gardens Chief Horticulturist David Salman. These new perennial introductions are particularly nectar-rich and attract many pollinators, including honey bees, native bees, butterflies and hummingbirds.
