What is my Plant Hardiness Zone?

Tim from teaches you how to figure out your USDA plant hardiness zone for your area. Most all Japanese maples are good in zones 5-9.

The USDA Plant Hardiness Index is a very good resource to check your plant hardiness zone.

The map located on may not be precisely accurate for higher elevation areas, however it goes give a very close reading of what plants are suitable in your particular area.

Once you figure out what zone you live in or where the plants will be located, simply go to our product page.

To do this, firstly go to

Click in the Search bar at the top of the page and type in the name of the plant in question.


Once you've reached the product page, look in the description. Typically it will be at the top of the page and state "Zones 5-9".

Hey Gary, that is a good rule of thumb! We believe that as long as the plants are able to thrive in the provided zones, you should be fine. I can’t 100% say if they will make it since I’m not personally raising them, but as long as you take good care of it I think you’ll be fine following the USDA Index!

I always read that you should purchase tres that grow in a zone below your zone. I live in zone 6. If I purchase trees that are good for zone 6 will they all make it ? Should I look for zone 5 trees and shrubs ?
Thank you
