USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map

USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map.

Every ten years the U.S. Department of Agriculture releases a new map that helps gardeners know what plants to plant and the best time to plant them. Every ten years that map changes.

Are you planting different plants than you did 10 or 20 years ago?
