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.

Florida State Flower and State Bird

Florida  State Flower and Bird

Mockingbird ~ Mimus polyglottos
Known from coast to coast, especially where the climate is balmy, Mockingbirds are one of the most varied of all songsters. It takes an expert to distinguish between the mocker's original melodies and his imitations, but some listeners have recorded as many as eighty-seven imitations of other sounds in seven minutes, all repeated four or five times. One Mockingbird joined a National Symphony Orchestra during an outdoor concert and imitated the flute which imitated the bird calls in "Peter and the Wolf."

Orange Blossom ~ Citrus sinensis
The exquisite fragrance of this waxy, white flower, so rich in romantic association, is reason enough for its being Florida's contribution to the national garland. Among other distinctions, the Orange Blossom is the only state flower from which a perfume is commercially produced. Growing on a low-branching evergreen tree which seldom grows more than thirty-feet high, the blossoms usually have five petals and attract the bees whose honey is of a very distinct and delicious flavor.
