Plant Hardiness Zone

This site explores the relationship between plants and climate across Canada. One portion of the site is dedicated to plant hardiness zone maps, which have traditionally been used by gardeners to help select which plant species to grow in their area. Another part of the site presents maps and models that summarize the climatic requirements of thousands of plants from across North America. A final aspect of the site gathers data and provides summaries about plants that occur in your area.
