Zone Finder

Don't know your zone?

Zone 11:

Ships Week of March 7th

This zone is the warmest, and refers to any region that seldom dips below 40°F. Zone 11 is considered to be frost-free.

Zone 10:

Ships Week of March 7th

Plants that love heat and humidity do very well in this tropical climate. Zone 10 receives plenty of rain, sunshine, and warm temperatures. Its average annual low temperature is 30–35°F.

Zone 9:

Ships Week of March 7th

This zone includes the thermal belt of California's Central Valley. In this growing region, gardeners don't worry about cold hardiness like they do in other parts of the United States. The bigger concern here is the summer heat. Weather in the thermal belt is affected by both coastal and interior weather patterns. Hot and very dry air is pushed in from the inland while the ocean provides cool and moist air. Plants that prefer cool and moist summers are difficult to grow in this region, whereas heat-loving plants thrive with minimal attention. Zone 9 has very hot summers, while winters have low temperatures ranging from 28–18°F, although frost is rare. Rain between November and April averages 2 inches per month. There's constant sunshine during growing season. Plants that do well in this area with full sun are butterfly bushes, lavender, black-eyed Susans, hibiscus, and sedum. Part-sun plants include honeysuckle, phlox, passion flower, hollyhock, and bee balm. Bleeding hearts would work great in shade.

Zone 8:

Ships Week of March 14th

This zone ranges 10–20°F as the average annual low temperature. Most parts of Zone 8 enjoy a temperate climate with mild winters. Summers are generally warm with cooler night temperatures. Due to the long growing season, this zone is home to many beautiful gardens. Although it's too warm for lilacs, many other plants from Zones 7 & 9 may actually do well here depending on the microclimate of your location. Suggested for some plants that should flourish in Zone 8 are angel trumpets, astilbe, bee balm, bleeding hearts, columbine, daylily, hostas, and butterfly bushes.

Zone 7:

Ship Weeks Vary by Location:

  • 7a ships week of 3/28
  • 7b ships week of 3/21

This zone has hot summers and mild, but pronounced, winters that sharply define the season without severe winter cold or enervating humidity. This zone also has a climate conducive to growing such plants as peonies, lilacs, and flower bulbs. In Zone 7, typical winter lows range from 35–26°F (2 to -3°C with record lows averaging from 18–0°(-8 to -18°C).

Zone 6:

Ship Weeks Vary by Location:

  • 6a ships week of 4/11
  • 6b ships week of 4/4

Warmer summers and cooler winters distinguish Zone 6 from coastal Zone 5. With a long growing season from 155 days at Cottage Grove to 280 days and 40–55 inches of annual precipitation in most places. If you live in Portland for example, it's among the mildest parts of Zone 6. Zone 6 averages 10–15°F (5–8°C) higher than those along the coast, while winters are the warm summers of this zone. The cold winters make this area exceptional for growing plants like peonies and plants that need at least 6–8 weeks of cold weather to grow and bloom properly.

Zone 5:

Ship Weeks Vary by Location:

  • 5a ships week of 5/2
  • 5bn ships week of 4/25
  • 5bs ships week of 4/18

Summer highs run between 65°–70°F (18–21°C) along the coast, and 70–75°F (21–24°C). Such mild temperatures are great for growing begonias. Steady breezes and lower temperatures, especially along the coast, make windbreaks and warm microclimates critical for heat-loving plants. Average January minimum temperatures range from 33–41°F (1–5°C), with annual lows averaging a few degrees colder.

Zone 4:

Ships Week of May 9th

This zone has more cold than neighboring Zone 5, more snow, and a shorter growing season. Compared to neighboring zones in Alaska and Canada, however, it has less winter cold and a longer growing season. No zone grows better perennials and bulbs. Average winter lows in Zone 4 range from 34°–28°F with extreme lows averaging 8°–0°F. The growing season is 150–200 days long, but because Zone 4 summers are temperate (high average from the low 60s to the 70s), plants take more time to develop.

Rated 3.1 out of 5 by 248 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Arrived Yellow, Now Almost Half Its Size The plant arrived with many yellow leaves, which have now fallen off. Its not as big as it was but is now green and has flowers, I think if it didn't take 5 days to get to me it might have been more green, but that is just my opinion. But all in all I'm very happy with my purchase. 05-18-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by So Beautiful, Colorful and Unique We received our tree in excellent packaging and quickly replanted it according to instructions, watering thoroughly and placed on our back deck. We had 2 different nights with terrible thunderstorms but the hibiscus weathered through without any damage or difficulty. Three days ago, after having this tree for approximately 3 to 4 weeks, our first blooms appeared. They were large and a very pretty dark coral color. Today, the yellow and red also appeared. What a unique plant this is and definitely will be a conversation starter. So happy with our purchase, will definitely be ordering more in the future. Thanks, QVC & Cottage Farms! 05-17-16
Rated 1 out of 5 by Scared The plant had all yellow leaves when it got here. Now all the leaves are falling off. We followed the instructions for the replanting, but I don't think this plant is going to make it. The plant is very costly for a dead plant. 05-17-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by product very nice The product was in real good shape when arrived. Packed very good for shipment. I can not wait till it blooms lots of buds on it. 05-10-16

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice tree My braided Hibiscus is doing quite well. I put it in a large pot and had a bloom within 2 weeks. The only complaint I have is I don't have a yellow section, it's peach, 04-30-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful I received two trees planted them in my flower garden and within 6 days got my first flower that's exciting I am having high hopes for these two trees here is a photo for u to also enjoy 04-07-16
Rated 2 out of 5 by Where are the blooms? Bought 2 of these braided hibiscus, 3 maybe 4 years ago. They are planted in large, tall planter pots, located in an area of my patio where they get full to partial sun every day (when the sun shines!) Each has produces all 3 colors but never at the same time as the blooms only last a day, then close up and fall off. My disappointment is I never have the abundance of blooms on either tree at any time as the presentation alludes. Only 2 maybe 3 at a time. Also, the leaves are very small, never large, lush, bright green leaves. Am I missing something? I have also used the Cottage Farm Bud and Flower Booster as directed as well as other top brand name fertilizers and are well watered as directed. I would have thought after 3-4 years, the root system would be strong and healthy and produce flowers like crazy! I have not given up and would welcome any feedback from QVC and or Cottage Farms. 04-05-16
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love it I have had this tree for 3 years now and it's beautiful 04-05-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic It's hearty and beautiful! Love hibiscus and having it multi-color is a bonus! 04-05-16
Rated 1 out of 5 by Bad experience I was so excited to find this Hibiscus plant and ordered two of them (I also talked my friend in Florida into purchasing). Unfortunately, neither of us had luck with these. All season they put out few blooms and no additional leaves and now over winter, I presume it died (even though my gardenia tree survived inside)? My friend in Florida had no better luck with hers. Hers was in the sunshine and we both did as instructed with planting and fertilizing. She called the company and was told it would not be guaranteed as it was a "tropical". So, I guess when it all boils down, one who lives in CA perhaps may have good luck, but it is not worth all the money! One is better off purchasing locally and just realizing it is probably for just that one season. These plants shown on air are kept in the most perfect conditions, but no matter where we live, we can not duplicate such unless we too have a green house! 04-05-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by Second Year of Blooms! I purchased this Hibiscus tree last year, and enjoyed the bright colored blooms through the Spring, Summer, and Fall. I fertilized it just last week, and already the leaves are turning a healthy green, and it is starting to bloom again! Looking forward to another season, and another year of tropical blooms to brighten my patio deck. Thank you Cottage Farms. 04-05-16
