The USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map shows the standard growing zones. Use the map to determine which plants are most likely to thrive in your region.
Planting Zone Map
Plant hardiness is very important to growing success. Check the map to determine which hardiness zone you live in, or click on the below "Submit" button to find your zone. You'll find zone designations at the end of many of the plant descriptions on this site and in the print catalog. A variety marked "Zones 3-8," for example, should grow and thrive in zones 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8.
Find Your Hardiness Zone:
What is my garden zone?
Determining your garden zone is important for understanding the climate and growing conditions specific to your region. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has developed a map that divides North America into 11 plant hardiness zones based on average annual minimum winter temperatures. Enter your zip code to find out what planting zone you live in.
What plants work best for my garden zone?
Once you know your gardening zone you can choose products that will thrive for that particular zone by shopping our website. Different plants have specific temperature requirements for optimal growth, and selecting plants that are well-suited to your zone increases the likelihood of success.
When is the best time to plant for my zone?
Knowing the average date of the last spring frost in your area is crucial for planning your garden and avoiding damage to frost-sensitive plants. You will need to know your hardiness zone’s first and last frost date. These are recommended dates you should consider before planting in the spring or fall. If planting too early you could be at risk of a late freeze which would kill our plants in the spring. Avoid these freeze temperatures that will affect your plants.
- Light freeze: 29° to 32°F (-1.7° to 0°C)
- Moderate freeze: 25° to 28°F (-3.9° to -2.2°C)
- Severe Freeze: 24°F (-4.4°C)
