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).

Maine Dahlias

Dahlias Thrive 'Down East'

The coast of Maine ranks among our country's most scenic and popular regions and for years, the coast and surrounding regions have been affectionately referred to as 'Down East.' It’s hard to find a more bucolic setting, with jagged rocks, bobbing lobster buoys and yes, plenty of beautiful gardens.

Our friend Evelyn S. in Wiscassett was happy to share these photos of her American Meadows dahlias. Given to her as a mother's day present from her doting son-in-law, you can see that they sure took to the environment. Evelyn planted these along the north side of a boathouse, just above the high tide mark. The pink dinnerplate blooms were over seven inches across and needed to be staked to keep from breaking in the strong coastal wind!

Thanks for sharing!
