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

(8” tall x 12-15” wide) Ben Fhada Rock Rose is a showy variety with bright yellow, orange-eyed flowers in late spring and early summer. This is a green-leaved form of rock rose and makes a good medium-sized groundcover in the waterwise garden. Single flowers are short-lived, but will continue to grow all summer. In colder Western winter climates, it's beneficial to plant rock rose where it gets some afternoon shade so the evergreen foliage doesn't scorch in the winter sun. Native to the Old World (Europe), it's a recommended companion plant for Blue Flax (Linum), Salvia sylvestris varieties, and Blue Fescue Grass (Festuca).
