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).

Planting Guides

Growing Pulsatilla (Pasque Flower): Plant Pulsatilla plants in well-drained, alkaline soil with full to part sun. In moister areas, Pulsatilla can be planted on sloping beds, hillsides and raised beds to ensure their roots aren't waterlogged in winter. Pulsatilla prefer colder zones (4-8) and aren't a good choice for the southern U.S. Young seedlings can be transplanted; established plants have deep tap roots and should be left in place. Pulsatilla is an ideal companion plant for many early spring blooming bulbs such as crocus, wildflower tulips, and miniature daffodils. Learn more about Growing Pulsatilla (Pasque Flower)
