This plant is MUCH hardier than the zone given. At present I live in zone 2 (interior Alaska) It gets down to -60 (or lower here). This Lychnis has been growing quite successfully here for at least 10 years. I will admit, that the snow cover helps a great deal, but it even survived a Cold, virtually snowless winter, a few years ago. It even self-seeds, so that I have been able to expand my collection of plants.
