New “Plant Hardiness” USDA Map Released

New government “plant hardiness” map is now online with new designated zones. While there were minor changes for our area, we continue to believe that in general and by distinct micro-climates, our high desert is probably one zone too warm as listed. You can get information by zipcode at this site. We recommend that experience with various plants in different high desert and alpine areas is still the best predictor of success.  Ask us!  Here is link:
