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
Nerine Lilies, also known as Guernsey Lilies, are easy to grow. These exotic looking, red-blooming flowers, sometimes known as Red Spider Lilies, are held aloft on tall stems with minimal foliage support. Plant in well-drained soil in full sun to partial shade. Plant as soon as possible, as this plant requires a long growing season before flowers emerge in late summer to early fall. Hardy in zones 8-10; plant as an annual in colder zones. May be started indoors in early spring and transplanted outdoors once threat of frost has passed. A South African native bulb, Red Nerine Lilies bloom in late summer with large clusters of red, lily-like flowers. Plant in full sun and water regularly, but don’t over water. In zones 3-7, lift bulbs before frost and store in a cool dry place for planting the following spring.

Planting Guides

Summer Blooming Bulbs, including popular varieties such as gladiolus and dahlias, are planted in the spring and bloom in the summer. Most of these bulbs are tropical and require warm weather to be planted. There must not be any danger of frost and your ground temperature must have reached 55 degrees Fahrenheit before planting. Many of our summer blooming bulbs can be planted as perennials in zones 9-10 (zone 8 if mulched), but should be treated as annuals in cooler climates. You can lift them and store them in the fall, or bring patio pots inside before frost. See page 15 of our Planting Guide for a bulb depth planting illustration.
