Grow Zones and Plant Facts: We do our best to help you make an informed decision to buy the right plants for your specific needs. Our grow zones are listed as a guide. We consult with industry leaders to be as accurate as possible but there is always some difference of opinions. Different industry sources offer conflicting information for the best grow zones for particular plants and even what zone you may be located in.
Use our grow zone recommendations as a guide. It does not take into consideration other factors such as higher elevations, micro-climates, mulching and even snow cover. These and other factors can have an effect on the hardiness of any plant listed as applicable for your grow zone.
It is impossible to provide all the details and plant facts, we encourage you to do your research as well. Contacting your local County Agricultural Extension Office would be the best source for questions on plant hardiness for your specific area.
