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).

Our Microclover Low-Water Lawn Seed Mix is a sustainable lawn solution that includes Low Work & Water Dwarf Fescue Grass Seed and Microclover Seeds. The cool season grass mix features two dwarf fine fescue grasses - Marrakech Fescue and Escalante Fescue. Microclover (Trifolium repens 'Pipolina') is an attractive waterwise lawn solution for high-traffic areas including lawns, athletic fields, golf courses, etc. This mix will quickly green up in spring and provide excellent density in summer, keeping an attractive dark green color all season. Fescue grasses have deep fibrous roots and Microclover spreads by rhizomes, for excellent durability in high traffic areas. Dense, deep roots also create a drought tolerant lawn; Low Work & Water turf typically only needs about 4” of rain per month, requiring little additional irrigation. Both are resistant to pests and disease, and nitrogen-fixing Microclover helps improve soil health and support healthy grass growth without any inputs. This lawn mix will will eliminate the need for fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides for a safe and healthy environment in your yard.

This mix is suited for a wide range of the United States and is best for all but the hottest extremes. This cool season lawn mix is best sown in March through early May, or late August through September.
