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.

  • Plant In Watershed

Comments about American Meadows Western Xeriscape Wildflower Seed Mix:

Planted in a new space at the bottom of a watershed to minimize water use. Despite regular watering, we got patchy results. Still next year may be beautiful as reseeds come to fore.

    Comments about American Meadows Western Xeriscape Wildflower Seed Mix:

    I admit we aren't the world's best gardeners, but we did everything we read on the site and we came away empty handed this year. It could have been a number of things (birds, wind, heat), but we struck out. I think we saw to plants from the entire bag. I haven't completely given up hope that some may pop up next spring.

        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).
