If you are looking to buy a particular item we have a listing called The Green Pages where members let others know which companies are superior. Find the list under 'Tools & Apps' up in the blue area at the top of the screen. Don't know if it is searchable by zip code? Shrug!

I am not sure if you have found this information in your quest for garden knowledge yet or not, but once you know what zone you are in, you can know if any specific perennial plant is hardy (able to survive winter outside) in your zone. Plants are assigned a range of zones in which they can survive, and gardeners use the ones that match the zone where they are gardening.

Usually brick'n'mortar stores make it easy by putting any perennials that are not hardy where sold with the annuals, to avoid confusion and unrealistic expectations. But if you branch into shopping online, being able to research that will be important.

Hay there purple hair Tiffany: Howdy, there again ! I tip my hat to you.

I can't forget your story about how you chose your user name Thumbs up COOL !

I didn't know our site had a plant zone tolerance guide. So, i'm gonna ask, how, and where, do i get to it.

I only have a smart phone. They work different than a computer or I-phone. Maybe ? @Olivia123 would like more instructions like me !
Thank You Lovey dubby

Philip, heythere! The hardiness of each plant is not always listed in the particular database here. Phlox paniculata is an example of a plant with hardiness information, hardy about anywhere in N America, from Z's 3 - 9:

Thumb of 2017-10-03/purpleinopp/020058

Garden Phlox (Phlox paniculata)

Any place selling perennials should provide hardiness info for each plant, and its' botanical epithet (proper name.)

@Olivia123 are you finding what you needed on this website & out in the world to get started gardening?

Beyond zones, individual gardens tend to include microclimates. So, for instance, in a particular facing up against a house, a perennial may survive winters although it won't growing elsewhere in the same garden.

More generally, (other things being equal) part of the challenge of perennial gardening can be finding out where in the garden which plants will do their best.
