Planting In Hardiness Zone 5

The Best Plants For Gardening In Zone 5

Planting zone 5 includes the southern coastal region of Alaska, the North Central United States, and portions of New England. It has a minimum average temperature range between -20 and -10 degrees F, thus moderately cold winter. While the growing season is shorter than other hardiness zones, you can extend it by using started plants in your annual garden.

Zone 5 gardens feature a wide range of environments. From coastal waters and woodlands to the wide plains of the Midwest, plants should not only be cold hardy, but they also need to match the growing environment.
