Does anyone know what the plant hardiness zone is for Madagascar? Or where I can find it? I can only seem to find maps and info the the US.

According to this map, the island nation is mostly tropical with an area of Tropical Wet, Tropical Wet and Dry and a very small Semi-Arid area: https://www.bing.com/images/se...

My guess is the plant hardiness zone would equate to 10a - 11a.

There's a USDA equivalent map for Madagascar here:

Thumbs up From that map, it appears that Madagascar is equivalent to U.S. Zones 10 - 13.

When in doubt you can assume a plant from Madagascar will be quite sensitive to cold. Most of the island is tropical.
