When the average nursery in North America offers you a choice of over 5000 varieties, it is difficult to find the plants and colors you want.
That’s why PlantSwatch offers you over 230 tried and tested plants to help you find the colors and features you want for your garden. And to make it even easier, PlantSwatch identifies the Hardiness Zones for each plant.

Your Hardiness Zone
Simply put, a hardiness zone is an area, such as a garden or park where a plant will survive in mini- mum or maximum temperatures.
Where can I ask?
We always encourage gardeners to get to know their local garden store and to ask as many questions as possible. The one questions a helpful assistant will always answer is: What is my hardiness Zone?
The Plants in PlantSwatch
We have included over 230 tried and tested plants and divided into colors and hardiness zones.
What Are Microclimates
Small changes such as painting a wall white or sheltering tender plants from the wind could provide improved growing conditions. For instance, a white wall will reflect more heat onto the soil or plants while a fence will shield some tender plants.
