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).

Plant Information
This is the wonderful, annual cousin of florist’s baby’s breath, which is a perennial and often a pest. With larger, wide-open blooms G. elegans blooms so early, it casts what appears to be a white cloud over the seeded meadow, often with the earliest blue cornflowers and red poppies blooming up through it—a true spring vision of wildflower beauty. One of our most useful meadow gardening species.
