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

Finally, here is the solution for that big patch of bare ground that cries out for something really bright and colorful. Just imagine how great your garden will look with this beautifully matched grouping of long blooming, low-care flowers. Best of all, no landscape design experience is needed as the collection comes complete with professionally prepared plans. The plants in this garden will thrive in full and part sun locations. The 18-plant garden covers an area from 75 to 100 sq. ft. in size. The 27-plant garden covers an area of 165-190 sq. ft. 

Included in the drought-resistant garden collection are 3 plants each of: Salvia May Night OR Salvia Little Night, Achillea Moonshine, Nepeta Select Blue OR Nepeta Walker's Low, Coreopsis Moonbeam, 4 plants of Centranthus ruber Coccineus (Jupiter's Beard), and 2 plants of Artemisia Powis Castle. We reserve the right to substitute a plant with similar attributes. The garden is not recommended for coastal areas of CA, OR, WA, because the Centranthus Ruber can behave aggressively in these areas. Order our Jumbo Waterwise Pre-Planned Garden For The West Coast instead. Note that this garden will perform best in morning sun/afternoon shade in hot desert climates.

Planting and Caring for Pre-Planned Gardens & Collections

Soil Preparation: Remember that proper soil preparation is the key to healthy, vigorous blooming perennials. Use Yum Yum Mix and a high quality compost at recommended rates to prepare the soil. Inoculate the plant roots with Plant Success mycorrhizal inoculant. Planting: Plant according to the mature size of the plant. Don’t be tempted to put the plants too close based on their size in the pots. They’ll grow quickly and cover the space shown in the planting map. (Maps included only with Pre-Planned Gardens, not Collections.)

Fertilizing: Once annually in mid-fall, after plants begin to go dormant. Use Yum Yum Mix or Yum Yum Mix Winterizer at recommended rates to improve the soil and provide essential plant nutrients.Use it with high quality compost, mix half and half by volume and spread on top of the soil. Scratch it in lightly and water thoroughly. It is also beneficial to treat the plant roots with Plant Success® mycorrhizal root inoculant if you didn’t do so at planting time. (Inoculation only needs to be done once.)

Mulching: In arid climates mulching is very beneficial. Coarse textured composts, shredded leaves, pine needles and composted bark are all excellent mulch materials. Apply to a depth of 1-2 inches. Replenish annually (or as needed).
