What zone is texas?

Climate zone map: Queensland

Australia has a varied climate, leading to different locations around the country having different heating and cooling requirements. To account for these differences the energy efficiency DTS Provisions vary from location to location and for simplicity, locations with approximately similar climates have been combined into eight climate zones.

The following provides a brief description of each NCC climate zone:

  • Climate zone 1 – high humidity summer, warm winter
  • Climate zone 2 – warm humid summer, mild winter
  • Climate zone 3 – hot dry summer, warm winter
  • Climate zone 4 – hot dry summer, cool winter
  • Climate zone 5 – warm temperate
  • Climate zone 6 – mild temperate
  • Climate zone 7 – cool temperate
  • Climate zone 8 – alpine

These eight climate zones are illustrated in the form of a climate zone map which was created using Bureau of Meteorology climatic data with two supplementary zones added to accommodate an additional temperate zone and alpine area. The climate zone boundaries are also aligned with local government areas and are therefore subject to change from time to time.

This climate zone map is relevant to the Queensland region.

Texas Planting Zones – USDA Map Of Texas Growing Zones

Click on the image above to see a larger version.

Texas Gardening Information – Do You Know Your Zone?

The coolest zone indicated by the Texas USDA planting map is 6b, located in the northern part of the state. The rest of Texas enjoys a very warm climate year round, including the winter months. The remaining Texas zones include 7a, 7b, 8a, 8b and 9a. Winter lows may drop down to -5 degrees F. or be as warm as 20 degrees F., depending on your location in the state.

Gardeners rely on the zone information presented in the Texas planting map as featured above. Just click on the map to enlarge it and find your planting zone. Your zone will help you choose appropriate plants that will thrive in your winter weather.

The USDA plant hardiness map is an upgrade from the 1990’s map, which was not nearly as sophisticated as the new map, released at the beginning of 2012. The new zone divisions also take into consideration other factors such as elevation, proximity to a large body of water and urban heat.

Although the Texas zone map is not a guarantee that plants will survive, it does provide a very strong framework for planning a garden. Other factors may come into play when considering the success or failure of a particular shrub, flower or tree such as planting location, soil condition and humidity. Once you have purchased a plant that is suitable for your growing region, be sure to follow the planting care instructions carefully.

New USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map

This mild winter and spring, along with welcome rainfall, is helping to push the drought and heat of 2011 out of the minds of gardeners. While we should remain cautious regarding the potential return of drought conditions, it is hard to resist the urge to plant the garden, or to replant and replace drought-damaged plants.

In case you have not seen or heard, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has just published an updated Plant Hardiness Zone Map (PHZM). This is a map which graphically shows the average annual minimum winter temperatures, divided into 10-degree F zones. This map has been in the works for several years, and reflects a lot of input not only from a multitude of weather stations, but also from folks in the horticulture industry. The last time the USDA PHZM map was updated was in 1990, and prior to that 1960, which was the first time the USDA produced a hardiness zone map. Arnold Arboretum has also produced cold hardiness zone maps in past years. The 1990 USDA map has been criticized because it only used a data set of 13 years of observations, while this new map uses a 30 year data set, with many more reporting stations, making it a more accurate and representative map than the 1990 version.

As you might expect, the cold hardiness zones have shifted warmer from the 1990 map. For the Tyler area, we moved from being on the border of zone 7b/8a (approximately 10 degrees F average minimum temperature) to the border of zone 8a/8b (approximately 15 degrees F average minimum temperature) – a 5 degree shift. Since I have lived in Tyler, I would say that 15 degrees is a lot closer to reality than 10 degrees for our average lows.

The new online map on the USDA web site has several new features, including being interactive, whereby you can zoom in to street level to see the climate zone, and is also searchable by zip code.

The PHZM web site is: http://planthardiness.ars.usda.gov/PHZMWeb/

Keep in mind that average minimum cold temperature tells only one part of the story regarding plant hardiness. For example, a plant may be rated cold hardy to zone 8a. But, if we had a very mild fall, with little cold temperatures to encourage plants to go dormant, followed by a sudden and severe outbreak of subfreezing cold, even hardy plants could be severely damaged.

Cold hardiness can also vary based on the duration plants are exposed to certain temperatures. A brief dip for an hour or two to 10 degrees followed by a warming trend might not harm a plant, while an extended exposure, or repeated exposures, to the same temperature might cause severe damage or even kill the same plant.

Some plants can handle cold temperatures if the soil is not wet, while others may rot when exposed to cold and wet soils.

You also have microclimates around your house, where cold air may collect in low lying areas, or pockets of warmer air occur near structures. Each of these can influence a plant’s hardiness in a specific location.

Still, knowing a plant’s hardiness in a typical winter is an important first step in selecting plants for the backbone of your landscape. It is fun to “stretch the zone” – growing plants that might be marginally hardy for our area – but such plants should be used with caution and not counted on for the permanent landscape display.

The average first freeze for our area is mid-March, still a week away, and this mild weather has everything coming out of dormancy. Winter may not be completely over yet. Remember it snowing in April in recent years? Hopefully, though, we have seen the last of freezing temperatures until next winter.

What’s your plant hardiness zone? New map more specific

Whether or not you are a gardener, you’ve probably heard of the United States Department of Agriculture’s Plant Hardiness Zone Map. This map divides the country into zones according to winter temperatures and is designed as a tool to assist in plant selection for different regions of the country. Each zone differs from the next by 10 degrees Fahrenheit, and the larger the zone number, the warmer the winters in that area.

Just a few weeks ago, a new hardiness zone map was released. Scientists at the USDA looked at weather data from the 30-year period of 1976 to 2005 and, as I’m sure I don’t have to tell you, the trend is toward warmer weather. If you are a gardener, you’ve most likely already adjusted your plant selections to account for the changing weather. The new USDA map, which is now interactive and highly specific for each area, just makes it official.

Many areas of the country are now in a warmer USDA zone than they were on the old map, but most of Central Texas remains unchanged. We’re still Zone 8b, which means that our average lowest winter temperature is 15 to 20 degrees Fahrenheit. That simply means that each winter we usually see at least one cold snap fall within that range. Some winters we might not see temperatures that cold, but we could just as easily experience an extreme weather event where temperatures might fall well below our normal range.

Though most of Austin remains in Zone 8b, where we were in the old map, if you zoom in on our region you’ll see some slight differences. One of the cool things about the new map is that you can go to the USDA website, enter your ZIP code and get a precise reading. In fact, you can even get down to a particular location of longitude and latitude and see specific weather data for your exact location. If you look at a close-up of the Austin region, you’ll notice that quite a large area west of MoPac Boulevard (Loop 1) and north of Bee Cave Road is actually Zone 9a, which means that it’s warmer than the surrounding area.

Even within small areas, temperatures will differ because of elevation, the urban heat island effect and many other factors. These areas are known as microclimates, and they might allow you to successfully grow plants that wouldn’t normally be recommended for your area. Or, they might cause plants that might do well across town or even at your neighbor’s house to do poorly in your yard.

Though the USDA map is helpful, it’s still best to consult with local experts and nurseries about what particular plants will do well for you. A plant’s hardiness isn’t the only characteristic that’s important. You also need to know water requirements, tolerance to different soil types, fertilization needs, heat tolerance and more. As we try to recover from the harsh summer of last year, it’s best to be armed with as much information and knowledge as possible. We can’t change the weather, but we can change our reaction to it.

Revised USDA plant hardiness map puts all of Dallas in Zone 8a

Dallas-area gardeners have known for years the region is warmer than its official status as USDA Zone 7. The government acknowledged the fact on Jan. 25 with the release of its updated Plant Hardiness Zone Map.

Central Dallas — that is, Dallas roughly south of LBJ Freeway — was considered Zone 8a for more than a decade by local garden experts. The new map shows all of Dallas and north to the Red River as Zone 8a.

An update of the official guide for 80 million gardeners reflects a new reality: The coldest day of the year isn’t as cold as it used to be.

In Zone 8a, the “average annual extreme minimum temperature,” based on data from 1976 to 2005, is 10F to 15F degrees. However, the map does not measure how hot it gets, a factor in Texas that is just as relevant, if not more so, to a plant’s survival.

For instance, the Outer Banks of North Carolina and northeastern Oregon also are Zone 8a.

Gardeners can register their ZIP code at planthardiness.ars.usda.gov and their zone will pop up.

USDA spokeswoman Kim Kaplan, who was part of the map team, repeatedly tried to distance the new zones in the map from global warming issues. She said even though much of the country is in warmer zones, the map “is simply not a good instrument” to demonstrate climate change because it is based on just the coldest days of the year.

I recently had numerous problems with a living room set I purchased last year, lets say the workmanship and material used was sub par. I was told at time of purchase that there was a year warranty and unfortunately I was forced to utilize that option. Your manager Kenneth was very helpful to me as well cautious to protect Home Zones interests. Once he made sure that the problem did in fact exist and was caused by poor quality materials and or workmanship he fulfilled the warranty.

I do not usually do this but he deserves credit, as a Manager myself I understand keeping an eye on the bottom line. I also know the importance of customer service and standing behind your product. Kenneth took care of both in this circumstance and I will not only to continue to do business with HomeZone, I will also let others know about my experience.

Thank You,

Dan B a sales consultant, was very informative, very helpful, and very nice. We really appreciate it and will definitely be back for all of our furnishing needs that home zone provides. Thank you!

I just wanted you to know what wonderful service your employees give to your customers. I purchased a leather love seat from the Weatherford store! When we got it home we found a scratch on the sofa! I contacted the store and they delivered a brand new sofa and also picked up the other one! That kind of service will certainly bring people like me back to your store and I will be telling others that is where they need to go!
Thank you for hiring such great people to work with!

Let me begin by saying we have furnished our entire 4350 sf home with Home Zone products, each bedroom, living room, sun room, and now our new media room. That being said, we have had most of our items delivered to our home via your company. We’ve never had a complaint, but today was just extra special.

This morning I had my new Maxim Mocha Sectional delivered by Randall and Herc. At $1800, you hope for a certain amount of delicate attention displayed when moving this monstrous 4 piece set into your home. From the time of arrival to departure, these guys were exceptional. Humorous, resourceful, and thorough. They actually had to move this couch, piece by piece, over a 5′ brick courtyard wall to get it into our new media room– a huge task in itself–still smiling and laughing the entire time. It’s not often that you encounter movers, especially in the heat, that are in such high spirits. I was so impressed with their work ethic that I wanted to share with you how great they were.

If my business relied on people of brute strength and winning personalities, I would definitely try and steal them from you! We look forward to doing more business with your company. John & Tiffany A
