      2012 New Plant Hardiness Zones

      USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map

      The 2012 USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map is the standard by which gardeners and growers can determine which plants are most likely to thrive at a location. The map is based on the average annual minimum winter temperature, divided into 10-degree F zones.

      'Plants are retreating North'
      Earlier this year, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) finally listened to what landscape architects, researchers, and gardeners have been saying for some time: plant hardiness zones are retreating north across the country. While the USDA argues that its new plant hardiness map, the first update since 1990, doesn’t show a clear connection with climate change, some experts disagree.

      The USDA may have to redraw the map again soon, this zone 7b (in times of old) just had a zone 9a Winter, not a beep below 20f
