Learn The Alabama USDA Zones – The Alabama Zone Map For Plant Hardiness

The USDA in Alabama has published an Alabama zone map for plant hardiness. Knowing the Alabama USDA zones for planting will allow you to successfully grow flowers, vegetables, trees and other plants in your garden.

To use the USDA Alabama zone map, find the area of the state you live in, note the color and then check that color on the legend. This will be the planting zone you live in.

This Alabama USDA zones map is based on the 2012 USDA map, where the USDA changed the current zones to reflect the warmer temperatures that have occurred to to climate change.

Now that you know what your planting zone is in Alabama, you can use this to purchase plants. Make sure that the plants you buy can survive in your zone. The types of plants that can generally survive in the Alabama planting zones are tropical and do not take cold weather well. Many cannot tolerate frost.

Your local nursery has additional information on the Alabama USDA zones and can help you select plants that will survive in your zone. A reputable nursery will only carry plants that will do well in your zone and will have non-hardy plants clearly marked as non-hardy.
