The Q&A Archives: Hardiness Zone

Question: What hardiness zone is Greene(Western part of Coventry) located in?

Answer: You're in USDA Zone 7 with minimum temperatures of 0 to 10?F
Zone 7 is the middle ground of gardening in the United States. It covers a Southern belt from Delaware into northern Georgia, then continues west into southern Oklahoma and northern Texas. In the East, ocean influences allow Zone 7 to continue north along the New Jersey coast, Long Island, and Cape Cod. Westerly, it snakes through southern New Mexico; bits of Arizona, Nevada and southern Utah; up the eastern border of California, into the central mountainous regions of Oregon and Washington; and into Alaska's Inland Passage. With lower elevations and longer days, among the many plants that thrive in Zone 7 are Acer macrophyllum (Bigleaf maple), Rhododendron Kurume hybrids (Kurume azalea), Cedrus atlantica (Atlas cedar), Cotoneaster microphylla (Small-leaf cotoneaster) Ilex aquifolium (English holly) and Taxus baccata (English yew).
