Our customers are world-wide and live in all climates, so we can always advise on the suitability of particular species. Consultations are available for registered members.
The sub-lists and USDA climate zone a species is allocated to will be a guide, unless you have knowledge of the plant in question we strongly advise checking horticultural references for the species and for your temperature range and conditions.
Some of our USDA climate zone ratings were added many years ago, more recent experience has shown that some plants are much hardier than previously recorded. We have updated ratings for some bulbous plants and herbaceous perennials. In general, plants from Russia due to the peculiarities of the climate is very hardy.
