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.

Maryland State Flower and State Bird

Maryland  State Flower and Bird

Baltimore Oriole ~ Icterus galbula
Even in the 17th century, American colonists marveled at what is still one of the most popular birds in the United States -- The Baltimore Oriole. They called it the "fiery hang-nest." The distinctive song of the Baltimore Oriole has fascinated many over the years. Ornithologist Alexander Wilson heard in its notes the "pleasing tranquility of a careless ploughboy, whistling for his own amusement." And Henry Thoreau, always an imaginative man, heard it as "Eat it, Potter, eat it!"

Black-Eyed Susan ~ Rudbeckia hirta
Although it is the state flower of Maryland, the Black-Eyed Susan was originally a native of the western prairies. But it has spread so extensively that there is hardly a region in the entire country where its bright yellow petals and "black eyes" are not a familiar sight The Black-Eyed Susan is a member of the Compositae, a hearty family that includes more than a tenth of the world's flowers. The success in the Black-Eyed Susan's colonization of the United States is due to the way the flowers are massed in the heads. This structure ensures a high degree of cross-pollination, for a single insect can fertilize several blooms at the same time.
