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 For Growing Gentiana (Gentian)

Gentiana (Gentian) is a large group of wildflowers found across the Northern Hemisphere renowned for their showy deep-blue flowers. It is often used medicinally by herbalists.
Preferred growing conditions:

  • Plant in a fast draining, infertile soil with full sun. Avoid clay soils. Mulch with gravel or not at all.
  • Gentians like moderate moisture levels in the soil and should be watered regularly.
  • Deadheading is not necessary.
  • Fertilize lightly in the fall with a half and half blend of Yum Yum Mix and good quality compost.

Special comments:

  • Gentians should be left standing over the winter and cut back in mid-spring to just above ground level.
  • Many species are mountain wildflowers and appreciate afternoon shade in hotter climates.
