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
(4-6" tall x 14-18" wide) SunSparkler® 'Wildfire' Sedum brightens the garden with bright rose-red foliage edged in pink. The 6-inch-tall plants form lovely mounds as it naturalizes, spreading to form carpets of color. In late summer pink flowers arrive and flower for well over a month. The flowers may be cut back after flowering or left standing for winter interest and to feed the birds. Bees and butterflies love the flowers too. Plant ‘Wildfire’ Sedum (aka stonecrop) in a sunny location in average-sandy-gravelly soil with good drainage. Drainage and sunlight are the most important ingredients for success with Sedums, following those guides, be creative and see what works! Containers, hillsides, retaining walls and ledges, borders, rock gardens, any place that low maintenance, low water, high color is desired. Replace some turf with groundcover Sedums. Hardy in zones 4-9 and evergreen in areas with milder winters, a light covering of conifer branches may help keep them growing. Otherwise, they will re-sprout in spring with fresh growth. Pinch back new growth if desired to thicken up the plant, water occasionally, and enjoy these lovely native powerhouses.
