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.

This is the classic "Wax Bean," the pole variety with those delicious, golden stringless beans everybody loves.

Zones 1 - 10

Plant Information

The classic "Wax Beans" are super popular for good reason: They're easy to grow, with shiny, long, round pods that are stringless, tender and delicious. Excellent frozen, canned or fresh in salads, soups and main dishes. The blooming vines and the bright yellow beans make a big show in the garden, too.

When and Where to Plant: Select sunny location and plant when all danger of frost is past and the soil has warmed. For best results, loosen soil with spade or fork, fertilize with vegetable food and smooth with rake. Firm soil over seed and keep moist. Plant bush types every 3 weeks.
Harvesting: Pick regularly when pods are 4-6"/10-15 cm., before sides bulge.

    Comments about American Meadows Golden Wax Bush Bean Seeds:

    I enjoyed how much they germinated and how big the plants got. I didn't have to start them off in a seed starter because they worked well just putting them in the ground. They seem to take all the different weather of Florida well. The main problem is that they didn't produce very many beans. The beans that did grow were small and the one I tried to let grow big seamed to rot.

    Q & A

    Plant With These:

    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).
