Regions / Mid-Atlantic
Selecting plants suited to the Mid-Atlantic climate will be a key step to success.
Various initiatives have taken place to determine how well plants would withstand the cold winter temperatures (Plant Hardiness Zones) or when plants would start suffering from the heat (Plant Heat Zones).
The Mid-Atlantic region lies in USDA Plant Hardiness Zones 5 through 7 and in AHS Heat Zones 3 through 6. Stretching over a long expanse of territory, the Mid-Atlantic states are home to a wide range of weather and climate. However, generally speaking, this region enjoys 4 distinct seasons characterized by mild springs, hot and humid summers along the coast, but cooler in the mountains, mild falls, and chilly winters with some snow.
