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 4 out of 5 by 18 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by not impressed I ordered these last year. The few that bloomed did not perform very well. Trying the replacements again this year. I hope they do better. 04-21-16
Rated 4 out of 5 by Bloomed, but most died one by one afterwards I planted these last year. They began to peek above the soil within 10 days. None of them grew more than 10" at the very most. I did get 3 flowers on the white ones (one had 5), 2 flowers on each of the others. The white ones had an extra hour or two of morning sun, and this might have been the reason. The NC heat and humidity seemed to be ok... However, after the blooms - which lasted two weeks at least - the plants began to die one by one over a period of 6-7 weeks. I think all but maybe two white ones died in early-mid autumn (long before a frost). However, CF is replacing them, so I am still giving these 4 stars. 02-23-16
Rated 1 out of 5 by Didn't Grow Of the 9, only 3 came up and none bloomed. Cottage Farms is replacing them, so will gry again this year? 02-23-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful! I purchased these last year and planted in pots on my patio. All of my bulbs arrived healthy. They began sprouting in 7 days. All of them bloomed (at least 2 per stem), they were gorgeous, and the fragrance was lovely! I cut and brought into my home, and gave some away for others to enjoy. One bloom filled the main area of my home with their lovely fragrance. I highly recommend. 02-11-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by So Pretty We bought them last year and the Lily's flowered wonderful. I love the fragrance allot. 01-20-16
Rated 2 out of 5 by Only white or white with pink blooms I purchased these primarily for the flowers in the photo. Received order spring 2015 and planted bulbs. About half sprouted and we got a few blooms. Nothing impressive about the order. Will not buy "collection" bulbs again. 01-19-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE these Awesome, fragrant lilies Love the compact growth and large fragrant flowers. Planted in pots on the deck for summer flowers in 2015. Huge blossoms lasted over 2 weeks! Will buy again in 2016. 01-10-16
Rated 4 out of 5 by Colors Tags that came in shipment do not match description on website. Not sure what colors I have. Kind of hard to figure out which to plant where. Hopefully they will all bloom so then I can mark what color each bulb produces. 03-29-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful! Beautiful! I have been extremely pleased with these flowers. They are even more beautiful than the pictures and the frangrance is heavenly. I plan on ordering some more next year so I can have them on three sides of the deck. 07-31-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by BEAUTIFUL AND UNIQUE first, let me say, I am not a gardener. i live on the beach; and between the salt and the sand planting anything "in ground" has always been a challenge. I have a very small patio and I prefer to use only hanging plants. I planted these bulbs in the corner of my patio and watched and watched them. I figured "no luck". all of a sudden, like a miracle these little bulbs popped up and started to grown. today they all bloomed, each and every bulb......all 9 of them. the look beautiful; now i"m sorry i put them in a spot where you can't really see them; but i know they are there. I'll be back next year; only this time with more confidence. thank you to cottage farms. and they have a wonderful scent 07-12-14
Rated 1 out of 5 by worst item i ever bought this never grew at all and this was a birthday present for my sister, worst b-day present she got,its dead and i'll never buy and plants,schrubs,flowers again minus 0 rating 07-08-14
Rated 4 out of 5 by Just wish I got all the colors All nine of the lilies came up and bloomed and I must say the scent is wonderful. My only complaint is that I did not get the three colors that were supposed to be in the order. Instead of three, I received all nine in the white color. I have called the company and they are willing to resend the missing colors.... next spring..... Just wish they had gotten it right the first time around. This is the second order this year from Cottage Farms that the wrong bulbs were packaged together. 07-11-13
