, A plant that is simply beautiful
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has devised a system to provide gardeners with a basic guide to plant hardiness – how much winter cold a plant can withstand. The Hardiness Zone Map system divides the United States and Canada into numbered zones based on lowest average winter temperature. Even within a zone, different micro-climates exist, such as large urban areas which may be warmer or land situated at different elevations.
How Hardy Are These Plants?: Zones 3-9
|ZONE||AVERAGE COLDEST TEMPS|
|1||below -50 °F|
|2||-50 °F to -40 °F|
|3||-40 °F to -30 °F|
|4||-30 °F to -20 °F|
|5||-20 °F to -10 °F|
|6||-10 °F to 0 °F|
|7||0 °F to 10 °F|
|8||10 °F to 20 °F|
|9||20 °F to 30 °F|
|10||30 °F to 40 °F|
|11||above 40 °F|
