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).

8-12' tall x 2-4' wide (cutting propagated). A rare golden-yellow blooming version of our native, Lonicera sempervirens, 'Sulphurea' is a visual delight with its soothingly colored flowers. Not as vigorous as 'Blanche Sandman', this vine does best with some afternoon shade, especially in hot climates. Plant in compost-enriched soil and water regularly.
