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.

New Jersey State Flower and State Bird

New Jersey  State Flower and Bird

American Goldfinch ~ Spinus tristis
Widely known and well loved, the Goldfinch ranges from coast to coast and form Southern Canada southward through most of the United States. As a joyous symbol of summer, this Finch flashes against the green of the field and grass on a wave-like course, climbing and dipping. Thoreau appropriately called the Goldfinch's song "the tinkling of ripened grain in Nature's basket." The brilliance of his yellow body provides sharp contrast to his jet-black tail and wings. In spring and summer, this colorful friend sports through the scattered trees of the farmlands.

Violet ~ Viola pedata
New Jersey's tiny state flower, the Violet, is a sparkling and welcome adornment of early spring. Although small, its beauty is immediate and unforgettable. This is one of the most common of the many species of Violets with flowers and leaves on separate stalks. A white variety with purple veins is common in the South and is called the Confederate Violet. The flowers are high in vitamin C and make a nutritious garnish on a salad, in addition to being used for medicinal purposes.
