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.

In any Italian dish from pizza to lasagna, it's not "real Italian" without this famous flavoring.

Zones 1 - 10

Plant Information

Oregano means "Italian cooking" to Americans, but is even more diverse than we think. Sure, it's a must on pizza, in spaghetti sauce, and the rest, but in the garden, one of the best things about it is the flowers--they're beautiful, and dry beautifully for pot pourris.

When and Where to Plant: Select a sunny location and sow seed after all danger of frost has passed. Cultivate soil and enrich with vegetable food. Grows well in containers, indoors and out. For earlier harvest start seeds indoors. Firm soil over seed.
Care: Responds well to trimming. Pinch tops to encourage branching.
Harvesting: Flavor is best before plant blooms. Pick leaves as needed and use fresh or dry. Leaves may be frozen.

    Comments about American Meadows Italian Oregano Seeds:

    I was really suprised just how well these grew in SE Alaska. Especially since it wasa very wet summer. I planted, thined and enjoyed all summer long. In the fall I cut all of it and hung to dry and am now enjoying my own homemade dried Oregano. I AM DEFINETLY PLANTING THIS AGAIN NEXT YEAR!

    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).
