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 out of 5 by 28 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Winner ! Got these last year. They grew well and bloomed well into the fall. They are coming back this year. Grew better than expected for one year. Nice pale yellow flowers. I recommend dead heading the plants. 04-03-16
Rated 1 out of 5 by What Is With Color? The roses have survived but flowers are not what was shown in presentation. Very few petals and are yellow at first but turn white. I mainly purchased them because wanted yellow roses. Very disappointed. Not to many blooms either. If in second year does better I will write again and if not I will also write as well. 03-26-16
Rated 1 out of 5 by received completely dried out if someone checks my zone to decide when to ship, shouldn't they also be able to figure out I live in a desert. other growers have sent plants packed in wet mulch which survived just fine. these tiny pots were bone dry and the box full of brown leaves. really disappointed. 03-25-16
Rated 1 out of 5 by Sorry... They all did not survive the 1st frost... I brought these last year, and all of them were dead within the 1st first...As the same time, I brought the lavender ground-cover and the double-knock-out roses, and they are doing GREAT ; D... I am going to send you a picture of them later... 05-24-15

Rated 1 out of 5 by groundcover roses I bought these roses few years ago and purple groundcover as well. Well they grew without problem BUT they werent groundcover how they supposed to be. They grew 3-4 feet tall with some unattractive blooms. I had to get rid of them . Thats too bad ! Usually i have some luck with the plants QVC sells but not this time. Sorry 04-18-15
Rated 1 out of 5 by didn,t live did not live or come back, Della in Fl. ok i put them in the ground and they did not live 02-25-15
Rated 1 out of 5 by Received Dead Again These look beautiful on air and planted them when they came in - 3 were almost dead and called Cottage Farms. Customer Service was rude, but 3 replacements came in, they died and so did the rest. Not going to bother calling Cottage Farms. Getting disheartened. Would think QVC would change nurseries. 01-20-15
Rated 1 out of 5 by Preview Your Review Dirt was dry, plants dry, only 2 barely survived.. 09-25-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by Preview Your Review I got these in the spring, and all 6 are thriving in the Louisiana heat...so far. However, I see no sign of them becoming any kind of groundcover. I wonder how long that takes? 09-22-14
