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.

Maine State Flower and State Bird

Maine  State Flower and Bird

Chickadee ~ Parus atricapillus
This gentle little bird takes its name from its clearly spoken call note, chick-a-dee-dee-dee. With the coming of spring it also whistles a high-pitched fee-bee. Chickadees are year-round residents in Maine. They rove the winter woodlands in small flocks, examining bark, twigs, and branches for spider eggs, cocoons, and other dormant insect life. This Chickadee can easily be distinguished from the other, small birds. Their white cheeks shine out, separating the solid black cap above from the fringed black bib below.

White Pine Cone and Tassel ~ Pinus strobus
The White Pine Cone and Tassel grows on the White Pine, a beautiful evergreen tree which grows rapidly and sometimes reaches a height of two hundred feet. Through centuries of evolution, the White Pine's leaves have changed to three-sided needles. The strongest of winds cannot harm them. In fact, wind is necessary to pines and to many other trees, for it scatters pollen grains. The White Pine Cone lacks the lovely color and the sheer beauty of some flowers. Yet, the White Pine Cone and Tassel magnificently reflects Maine's stern climate, her rugged soil, and her independent people.
