Great find, Sluice, thanks for the link! This is a nice upgrade. Too bad we cannot zoom in on those state maps.

I'm not buying this one. No way can Athens, Ohio be the same zone as N.W. Ohio.

I went from 8b to 9b, which makes much more sense for my conditions. I had thought that perhaps I was in a weird banana belt of some kind.

Really awesome garden formandfoliage.
Thanks for sharing.

Dax: who was zone 5b-6a now to 5b (actually was in a banana belt) until they re-wrote the map. I'm still confident in zone 6 plants, however.

Nice formandfoliage! I like the discussion of the two growing environments, and also the color wheel.

Quick question, are the photos from CA, FL, or a mix?

Thanks again for the link!

The photos are all of my California garden, although we may get to the Florida garden at some point (it's in transition, like so many gardens!) My garden will also be on the Garden Design website in a couple of days - it was in the hard copy mag that came out Jan 1, and then they'll put up a longer version on Feb 1. I'll post a link.
Thanks!

Hey Nate, woo hooo...I went from zone 3 to 4a. I do agree that there are years I can grow 4a and 4b plants. Some times once they get established I'm ok. BUT, then there are years where we have a SOLID zone 3 winter and a lot of the tender plants disappear.

Thanks for sharing the zone map.

Beautiful gardens Sara. You've done a beautiful job with your website addressing colors and your growing environments. Nicely done!
