USDA Plant Hardiness Map

The Plant Hardiness Map, issued by the United States Department of Agriculture, is the standard by which gardeners and growers can determine which plants are most likely to thrive at a location.  This system divides the United States and Canada into eleven zones, based on average minimum temperatures in winter.

According to the most recent 2012 map, Hunt County is in zone 8a. This means that in general, the coldest temperatures we experience range from 10-15°F.
