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).

'Pink Flamingo' has very narrow blue-green foliage and soft pink flower spikes in early fall. A heat-loving plant, it is an excellent choice for the Southwestern US, Texas and mid-Atlantic states. Its narrow, upright growing habit makes it a great choice against walls and in tight spaces.
