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
Blackjack Gold Black-Eyed Susan (Rudbeckia triloba) is an improved form of the native Black-Eyed Daisy, bred by Jelitto Seed of Germany to bloom longer and be decidedly perennial.  Normally a re-seeding biennial, 'Blackjack Gold' will attract numerous butterflies when in flower and seed-eating songbirds during the fall and winter. Perfect for bouquets. A nice companion plant for Panicum grass as well as red Bee Balm (Monarda), Joe Pye Weed (Eupatorium) and Phlox paniculata 'David'.
