Zone 7 Information

Zone 7 dominates the upper part of Texas, Georgia, Alabama, and the Carolinas. It weaves a slim path through Nevada, Utah, and Arizona, then straight up the coastal states. Many plants do well in this zone because the seasons are well balanced throughout the year. Choose from a large list of bulbs, fruits, and vegetables.

Zone 7 was divided in 1990 into two areas by the National Arboretum to provide gardeners with even more environmental detail: 7a and 7b.

7a - Minimum temperature of 0 to 5 F (-15.0 to -17.7 C) Places like Bellevue, Washington, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, and South Boston, Virginia.

7b - Minimum temperature of 5 to 10 F (-12.3 to -14.9 C) Places like Little Rock, Arkansas and Griffin, Georgia.
