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.

West Virginia State Flower and State Bird

West Virginia  State Flower and Bird

Cardinal ~ Richmondena cardinalis
To watch the habits of a Cardinal family is fascinating. Father sits on an exposed perch for all to admire and pours out his series of whistles while Mother and her young remain hidden in the foliage, occasionally uttering a sharp call note. Once primarily a southern bird, in recent years the Cardinal has steadily extended its range northward. Now, more and more people find their winter days enlivened by the compelling beauty of this prince.

Rhododendron Maximum ~ Rhododendron maximum
The Rhododendron of West Virginia sometimes grows to be a thirty-five foot tree. This native species is perhaps the hardiest of all the evergreen Rhododendrons, and certainly the tallest and most treelike of the hardy northern types. Usually rose-colored, the flowers are about one-and-a-half inches across and slightly smaller than the Pacific Coast variety. Its flowers appear after the leaves of the current year’s growth are well expended. This new foliage hides the flower clusters to a considerable degree. This Rosebay Rhododendron, as it is also called, requires semi-shade to do well, and its frequently grown in gardens in the northern United States.
