USDA Hardiness Zones

The United States Department of Agriculture came up with these zones to decipher which plants are perennial or annual for specific locations. An annual can be grown temporarely almost anywhere. Although if you are looking for something more permanent then you would want to plant a 'hardy' plant, or perennial, which can tolerate the temperature or rain all year in that area. Typically, if you are looking for a perennial, you want it to be the zone you are in or lower. Some locations can be protected and sunnier, where you might even be able to go one zone higher. In Illinois and particularly the Chicago land area, we are zone 5.
