Zone Finder

Don't know your zone?

Zone 11:

Ships Week of March 21st

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 21st

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 21st

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 28th

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 4/11
  • 7b ships week of 4/4

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 4/25
  • 6b ships week of 4/18

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 5/16
  • 5bn ships week of 5/9
  • 5bs ships week of 5/2

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 23rd

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.

DON'T BOTHER I received these and unfortunately they are not worth the effort or the money. Mine are now dead. Did everything the pamphlet said, and nothing worked. I thought they looked bad when I received them, and I was right. Nothing helped them. 05-01-15
One bloom never came back Only 2 bulbs grew one bloom and did not come back not satisfied 04-28-15
typical, never bloomed The bulbs sold always sound great, and true you can not buy them locally!! However since, I never saw them bloom, but on tv, who cares!!!! 03-26-15
Don't Buy. None of these came up and I'm a pretty experienced gardener 02-16-15
a dud! I bought these last time they were on, and they grew, and had one flower. They are suppose to be perennial, but they never made it till the next spring! Of course I never got my money back either! And so it goes! Learned my lesson! 02-01-15
Not one bloom! I am so disappointed! I love QVC but have no ouch with the plants. This was my 3rd or 4th time ordering flowers and I have had only 1 successful purchase! Really sad because all the flowers look so beautiful in TV and so easy to dare for. Don't think I will try anymore plants from here 09-17-14
Only 2 Out of 3 Bloomed The bulbs were nice- sized and healthy-looking when they arrived. I planted them within 2 days and waited and waited and waited for them to come up. They finally did in about 5 1/2 weeks. They were not very tall nor were the flowers very large, and only 2 bloomed. The red one was really nice, deep in color and the pink one was a delicate appleblossom color. The 3rd bulb (white) was just leaves, disappointed. This was not a good year for a lot of things in my garden due to all the rain here around the Great Lakes so I will blame the weather. I can't recommend them until I see how they do next year, and hopefully they'll bloom better. 08-04-14
No what I expected If there is one plant I know it is Amaryllis. The bulbs are not what I expected at all. Once was dead and the other two were small - I would never have paid the same amount for these bulbs in a nursery. I have had good experiences with Roberta's in the past so I choose to chalk this up as an anomaly so I'll probably order again, but I am very disappointed. 07-18-14
Failed It might be this was a northern plant but it did not make it in the south. It didn't last 3 weeks in a sunny area. 06-29-14
not sturdy I purchased these bulbs a year ago. One came up last Summer, 4 showed up this Spring. Fragile plants. Not impressed. 05-19-14
not as expected I bought these last year. 2 died I had a tiny bloom.It died over winter. I ordered more this year. They arrived dry with no green. (as shown in the shipped as". I planted them in planters this time. Hope they do better with the special soil mix. I am tired of the claims on air and then not getting the specified results even when I am very careful to follow instructions. I have spent a lot on these garden shows.....might end up going to the local garden centers if quality does not improve. Some plants arrive so small I wonder why I bought them. Why bother to ship all bulbs in 1 bag? They should be separated and marked so we at least know what color each one is. 05-08-14
Use that special fertilized potting mix when plant First of all, I love Amaryllis; when they came I planted two in pots and one just in the ground. Usually, anything I plant in the ground comes up fine but not this. So the one I just planted in the ground didn't do well--well, it basically did nothing. But the other two I planted in pots with a special potting mix that I just happened to have ---they turned out GREAT! So I guess their a little picky. 04-13-14
