USDA Hardiness Planting Zones
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
- If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15�F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
- If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
Thymus | Thyme
Thyme plants (Thymus) are an excellent small-scale groundcover for the low-water garden. Thyme can be used as a colorful, low-maintenance replacement for small patches of lawn. Use one variety, or intermingle patches of different plants. Thyme lawns are typically best for smaller spaces less than 200 sq. ft. and they prefer climates of the western U.S. (Thyme dislikes hot, humid summer weather.) So stop mowing and replace your turf grass with low-maintenance thyme! Read about Creating A Thyme Lawn.
