USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold-hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

Update: Beautifying a City Corner

At the end of June, I wrote a blog about planting Wildflowers in the greenspace in front of my city home. Now that it's the beginning of August, I figured I'd share an update about how the seed is doing.

It's looking gorgeous, even though we had a lot of rain when I first planted and almost no sunshine, which slowed down the bloom time a little bit. I hope you enjoy the before/after photos I've shared below. I will note that it's been hard to take a good picture of the space; people walking by keep picking the flowers (which was one of the intentions of the project)! I'm thrilled to be brightening people's days with Wildflowers.

After Wildflowers

People are loving the colors of the Northeast Mix I planted:

Blue Cornflower

Wildflowers After

I'm thrilled with the results, mostly because I won't ever have to plant again (the Regional Mixtures have Annuals and Perennials) and it cuts down on my mowing! I'll be sure to post more pictures once the summer continues, as things keep blooming. Happy Gardening!
