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
10-12" tall x 12" wide. "When I saw my first plant in bloom some years ago, it literally took my breath away," said HCG founder and chief horticulturist David Salman. Its flowers are that beautiful! Salvia daghestanica Platinum® is easy-to-grow, xeric (waterwise), eye-catching in and out of flower, and not browsed by rabbits and deer. In late spring, the low, tight rosettes of textured, nearly-white foliage create a superb backdrop for the showy spikes of large, clear-blue flowers. Dwarf Silver-Leaf Sage blooms for 3 to 4 weeks. It requires a hot, full-sun position and grows readily in most soil types including clay! A tidy grower, this plant can be used in perennial borders as an edging plant, in xeriscapes massed around taller perennials or in rock gardens as a treasured specimen. 2005 Plant Select Introduction (cutting propagated)
