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.
There are two important measurements in determining if a particular plant will grow well in your part of the country.
- You must live within the recommended USDA Hardiness Zone (aka Plant Hardiness Zones) and
- If you are planting a fruit/nut tree, you must determine if your area receives enough annual Chill Hours
Plant Hardiness Zones are an approximation of the maximum amount of cold weather a plant can tolerate over winter. Chill Hours (sometimes called Chill Units) are an approximation of how many hours of weather between 32 degrees and 45 degrees (F) a plant requires to properly go dormant so it can wake up and blossom and/or set fruit. For plants to thrive in your geographical area, it may require matching optimum Plant Hardiness Zone compatibility with the optimum Chill Hours. Learn More.
