1a.) I need a better understanding of the USDA Hardizone Zone rating which its focus is on low's, while a consideration as large if not larger are highs! I want to know if a plant will survive our 100's+ summer temps.
1b.). I have your 1999 Seeds &Plants plus "Heirloom's" catalogs and w/ rare exception I don't find a hardiness zone rating w/ each description, where should I look?

Because of your hot summer climate you may want to consult Sunset Western Garden Book (ISBN# 0-376-03851-9) and check their listing of 'plants for arid gardens'. This will give you an idea of the kinds of plants you can grow that will thrive in your locale.
