The Q&A Archives: Zone 4 Plants

Questioner's Location: Eldora, Io
Date: April 30, 2009

Question: I have just visited your garden center and am very disappointed in your selection of plants and trees. The roses and flowering shrubs are showing zone 5-9. The $99 tree Zelkova is not recommended for even Iowa. Why can't you get appropiate plants for this area?

Answer: I think the garden manager would benefit from your observations so why not phone or visit and talk directly with them? Sometimes plants are ordered for whole regions and as you have discovered, not all are suitable for all areas in that general region. Glad you avoided planting those that were questionable!
