Interesting Climatic zone we are in Transitional Humid

joeinmo 6b-7aNovember 12, 2012

Our zone is a narrow fringe zone ( zone 8) which enables us to grow plants and trees normally reserved for warmer or in some cases cooler climates. The map here is used by a golf course seed company to show which grasses can be used for various courses in each region. The Ozarks would actually be able to use a variety of Bermuda Grass that they have wow!

It's a region where if you try it, it might grow!

Here is a link that might be useful: More here on these regions from site.

How interesting, Joe! Seems our long-time zone 6 is a lot different in the last few years, more like when I was a child here.

I'm keeping that map and doing some research on Transitional Humid. Thank you so much for your post, Joe.

Interesting Joe. There is certainly more to it than just how cold it gets in the winter.
