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).

The Years Of Blooms Bulb Collection is for anyone who wants to put in minimal effort for maximum results. Plant these bulbs just once in fall and then sit back and enjoy year after year of blooms each spring. The bulbs in this collection naturalize (multiply and spread), and are so reliably hardy that you might even get decades of blooms. We’ve combined blue blooming Grape Hyacinth (Muscari armeniacum), Ruby Giant Crocus (Crocus tommasinianus), Bronze Charm (Tulipa batalinii) and Lilac Wonder Wildflower Tulips (Tulipa bakeri), blue-blooming Siberian Squill (Scilla siberica). This easy-to-grow collection (216 bulbs) will bloom from early to late spring. This bulb collection is cold hardy in zones 4-8 and is deer resistant. These bulbs prefer full sun to part shade. Plant the Scilla bulbs to a depth of 5”; plant the other bulbs to a depth of 2-4”. For greater visual impact, plant similar bulbs together in drifts. 

Bulbs are subject to change due to availability. If we make substitutions, we feature bulbs with similar attributes suitable to the collection design. Does not include planting map.

Planting and Caring for Pre-Planned Gardens & Collections

Soil Preparation: Remember that proper soil preparation is the key to healthy, vigorous blooming perennials. Use Yum Yum Mix and a high quality compost at recommended rates to prepare the soil. Inoculate the plant roots with Plant Success mycorrhizal inoculant. Planting: Plant according to the mature size of the plant. Don’t be tempted to put the plants too close based on their size in the pots. They’ll need the space to grow and fill in the expected area.

Fertilizing: Once annually in mid-fall, after plants begin to go dormant. Use Yum Yum Mix or Yum Yum Mix Winterizer at recommended rates to improve the soil and provide essential plant nutrients.Use it with high quality compost, mix half and half by volume and spread on top of the soil. Scratch it in lightly and water thoroughly. It is also beneficial to treat the plant roots with Plant Success® mycorrhizal root inoculant if you didn’t do so at planting time. (Inoculation only needs to be done once.)

Mulching: In arid climates mulching is very beneficial. Coarse textured composts, shredded leaves, pine needles and composted bark are all excellent mulch materials. Apply to a depth of 1-2 inches. Replenish annually (or as needed).
