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).

Sorghastrum nutans Thin Man PP#28,923 is a selected form of native Indian Grass. 'Thin Man' has very blue foliage and a narrow, very upright growing habit to the leaves and flower spikes. Blooming in late summer, the attractive bronze-colored flowers set lots of big seeds that feed songbirds and other seed-eating animals. 'Thin Man' was selected from a population of Indiangrass originally collected near Clovis, NM and is more xeric and tolerant of dry growing conditions than selections from the Mid-West. A Plant Select winner.
