USDA Plant Hardiness Zones

To help gardeners understand which plants will grow well for them, the entire USA has been segmented into ‘Plant Hardiness Zones’. Knowing your zone number is helpful when shopping for plants because:

  • Cold-area gardeners can avoid buying plants that simply won’t survive their lowest winter temperatures.
  • Warm-area gardeners can steer clear of plants that need a period of cold weather in order to bloom again.

Idaho State Flower and State Bird

Idaho  State Flower and Bird

Mountain Bluebird ~ Sialia currucoides
The Mountain Bluebird sings its seldom-heard but sweet warble in high meadows at altitudes of up to 10,000 feet. It may venture as far north as central Alaska and is sometimes called the Arctic Bluebird. Nesting in tree holes and bird boxes, this species incubates two sets of five or six blue eggs in a season.

Syringa ~ Philadelphia lewisii
No state flower has as many names as Idaho's, and none raises as many questions. This confusion over the flower's proper name is the fault of the old herbalists who united jasmine, mock orange, and lilac under once classification, Syringa. The kind of Syringa chosen as Idaho's state flower grows to twelve feet in height. In early summer it is covered with masses of fragrant white flowers. Glistening petals surround numerous bright yellow stamens. After the flower's four petals fall, the green seed capsule, set in a cup made by four sepals, continues to decorate the shrub. In late summer this seed capsule ripens and releases the seeds.
