If you want a shrub, perennial or tree to survive and grow year after year, it must be able to tolerate year-round conditions in your area. The United States Department of Agriculture has broken up the country into zones to help everyday gardeners choose the right plant for their area. Northeast Ohio is part of the USDA Hardiness Zone 5.
