you know your USDA Hardiness Zone? Your hardiness (or growing) zone is
determined by the average annual minimum temperature (basically how
cold it reliably gets in the winter). It's one of the most useful ways
to know what plants will survive your winter and grow in your area! To
find your zone, visit the USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map (it's interactive!) or find your approximate area on our map below.
in mind that any plant's marginal zones (the end zones north and south
of its range) can be more marginal in terms of performance; if you are
attempting to grow a plant at the extreme of its range, please watch it
carefully and give it a little extra TLC in extremes of temperature (hot
or cold). This may entail mulching/covering in hard winters or extra
shade or water in hot summers.
