The Brooklyn Botanic Garden (in a hardiness zone where the coldest temperatures are supposed to be from 0 to minus 10) has for the past five years been growing Salvia guaranitica, a gorgeous, deep.
While the map marks Edmonton and area as “3a” (a “warm” zone 3) we can grow many zone 4 plants very well and, depending on where you live, even zone 5s. Deciphering the Numbers Canada has 8 climactic zones, ranging from 0 (Nunavut) to 8 (Victoria).

The Arbor.South-Florida-Plant-Guide's plant zone map is a good indicator of what winter temperatures you can expect where YOU live.and what plants will work for you. Zone 9A - Low temperatures of 20-25 degrees Fahrenheit Zone 9B - 25-30 degrees Zone 10A - 30-35 degrees Zone 10B - 35-40 degrees. What's your zone? Sometimes knowing exactly which zone you're in - plant zones can actually shift a bit from.South Africa does not have widely recognised horticultural zones as does the United States of America. These zones are provided as a guide and exceptions do occur, e.g. isolated frost pockets in Zone 1 and frost free areas in Zones 4 and 5 do occur. Description of zones Zone 1: Coastal summer rainfall. Frost free: Mean monthly minimum.
The United States Department of Agriculture published, and has occasionally modified and updated, this hardiness zone map of North America. The most recent map, based on climate data gathered at National Weather Service stations throughout the U.S. and by weather stations throughout Canada and Mexico, came out in 1990. You can find 11 zones marking the average lowest winter temperatures, with.Read More
RHS (Royal Horticultural Society) hardiness zones begin at H7 (temperatures similar to USDA Zone 5) and are used to designate very hardy plants that tolerate sub-freezing temperatures. On the opposite end of the temperature spectrum is zone H1a (similar to USDA zone 13), which include tropical plants that must be grown indoors or in a heated greenhouse year round.Read More
Being able to understand a hardiness zone map means you’ll have a starting point for making wise planting decisions. Temperature Range for Planting Zones. Planting zones are broken down into thirteen areas, also known as USDA zones, which cover the entire United States, including Hawaii, Alaska and Puerto Rico. Each agricultural zone covers a 10-degree range. Zone 1 is the coldest, with an.Read More
The 2012 USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map is the standard by which gardeners and growers can determine which plants are most likely to thrive at a location. The map is based on the average annual minimum winter temperature, divided into 10-degree F zones. For the first time, the map is available as an interactive GIS-based map, for which a broadband Internet connection is recommended, and as.Read More
The United States Depa rtment of Agriculture (USDA) has released the first new USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map since 1990. As gardeners, farmers and others involved in growing pursuits are aware, the Plant Hardiness Map is used to determine where certain species are most likely to thrive, and this new edition of the map reveals that those locations have shifted.Read More
We have provided here an image of the USDA Zone Map to be used for reference when choosing a grass from the grass type table shown above. Note that the USDA map is a Cold tolerance or Hardiness map. This map should only be used as a reference for the 'hardiness' of plants or the lowest temperature that a given plant can tolerate before dying.Read More
Welcome to the Plant Hardiness Zone Map of the British Isles. The plant hardiness zone map of the British Isles is the most detailed ever to be created for this region, and is the product of many months work studying the average winter climate statistics for the periods 1961 to 2000 recorded by the Irish and UK Met Offices. The USA first undertook climatic studies to provide a guide map for.Read More
A hardiness zone is a geographically-defined zone in which a specific category of plant life is capable of growing, as defined by temperature hardiness, or ability to withstand the minimum temperatures of the zone. The zones were first developed by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), and have subsequently been adopted elsewhere. They are categorized according to the mean of the.Read More
The recent warming has been enough to change the Plant Hardiness Zone Map for South Carolina. Columbia was at the north end of zone 8 in the 1990 version. The new release has zone 8 extending as far north as Greenville and Charlotte. Image Credit: USDA. Notice that there is still a small area of zone 7 just north of Columbia in northwestern Richland county and southwestern Fairfield county.Read More
A hardiness rating is based on a map developed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. First published in 1960, the map divides North America into 11 hardiness zones. Each zone is determined by a 10-degree Fahrenheit difference in the average minimum temperature. Zone 1 is the coldest and Zone 11 has the warmest winter temperatures.Read More
