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).

New York State Flower and State Bird

New York  State Flower and Bird

Eastern Bluebird ~ Sialia sialis
The sweet liquid warble of this early spring migrant was music that Henry Thoreau looked forward to with eagerness. While the bright blue of the male pleased his eyes, even more pleasing to him was the bird’s song in flight. Often deceived by prematurely mild weather, many Bluebirds return north too soon, and are killed by sleet and ice storms. For this and other reasons, the Bluebird is now rare in vast portions of the East. Fortunately, many concerned individuals help shelter the early-returning Bluebirds by building boxes.

Rose ~ Rosa Carolina
Prior to the latter part of the 16th century, only four species of Rose were known to the Western world. The revolution in Rose breeding in England came about the year 1800 with the introduction of several China Rose species. There are now some 4,000 species. Most Roses are thorny, and are characterized by flowers having five sets of parts, as well as a fleshy fruit, such as rose hip or an apple. No flower of the Western world has had such great significance or such a proud tradition as the Rose. As a symbol of purity, it recurs in religion, art, literature, and heraldry.
