USDA Zone Chart

If you're growing cold hardy carnivorous plants, the USDA Hardiness Zone Chart is useful to determine the type of winter protection you will need to provide for your plants. Each zone is based on the average lowest recorded temperatures in a given region. The lower the number, the colder the winters.

Our nursery is located in Eagle Creek, OR, just 35 miles southeast of Portland.

Below are the USDA zones of plants' natural habitat. Even if you live in zones colder than a plant's natural habitat, you can still grow them successfully with the proper winter care. We have customers from Wisconsin to Maine who have followed our recommendations and successfully cared for cold hardy carnivorous plants exclusively outdoors! For more information about growing carnivorous plants in cold climates, watch Grow Carnivorous Plants DVD, Volume 1.
