Re: Re: New USDA Zone Map

It takes more than a zone area to make a plant survive in your yard. Guessing it is a starting point for a plant choice.

I am still in the same zone here, but have lost plants that should
survive in zone 5, and have also over wintered zone 6 plants. Trial and
error is the only way IMHO to know what really grows here.

My issue is plant labels... they need more than a zone and limited info
on them.... Many times I have purchased a plant due to it's appearance,
then get home and research it. You then realize that it will not survive
where you planned on putting it... and now have to figure out what you
are going to do with it. Thinking about carrying a few books in my car
from now on....:(
