State Maps of USDA Hardiness Zones for Planting

USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map


Choosing the right plants for your garden can be difficult, but one of the best ways that gardeners can ensure their plants are happy and healthy is to make sure they're suited to the climate.

You can find your USDA zone with state maps that are based on extreme minimum temperatures. However, it's important to note they do not account for maximum temperatures, so some plants may struggle. But using these maps is an excellent guide for picking flowers, shrubs, trees, and herbs that will be able to thrive without much maintenance.

To read each map, just click on the picture or header to see the full-size map. Look for the color-coded legend of zones, and match up the correct color and zone to where you live. You can then choose plants that are suggested for that USDA zone.
