FROST HARDINESS

Frost-hardiness plant qualities

Know your frost hardiness zone before making your choice; areas receiving harsh frost should only choose from the Hardy Frost category, and plants from this category will also survive both light and moderate frost. Many deciduous species, bulbs for example, can survive frost by retreating underground, but will need protective cover through winter.
