Bacopa monnieri (mon-ee-ER-ee) is a perennial, herb plant of the Plantaginaceae family.
−12.2 °C to −9.4 °C
Plant hardiness is a geographically defined area in which a plant is capable of growing. It's defined by climatic conditions, including its ability to withstand the minimum temperatures of the zone. For example, a plant that is described as "hardy to zone 10" means that the plant can withstand a minimum temperature of −1 °C (30 °F).
The extremes of winter cold are a major determinant of whether a plant species can be cultivated outdoors at a particular location; however, the USDA hardiness zones have a number of drawbacks if used without supplementary information. The zones do not incorporate summer heat levels into the zone determination; thus sites which may have the same mean winter minima, but markedly different summer temperatures, will be accorded the same hardiness zone.
