Plant Hardiness Zones in Arizona
Areas in Arizona Where Plants Are Most Likely to Thrive
Not all plants thrive under the same temperature and climate conditions. Therefore, it is important to know your state’s climate zone so you know which plants you can successfully grow there. Most gardeners use the USDA Hardiness Zone Map to determine what plants thrive in a specific location. The map is based on the average annual minimum winter temperature, divided into 10-degree F zones. Below is the map for Arizona. Arizona is mainly known for its high temperatures and arid climate. However, its overall climate actually varies across regions, seasons, and times. As a result, some areas in Arizona have longer growing seasons than others. We recommend planting peppers, sugar, snap peas, tomatoes, and carrots here for this reason. The Garden Tower Project is committed to socially-responsible practices at every level of gardening. Our mission is simple: to help transform the face of gardening and food sustainability across the world. The Garden Tower® 2 vertical planting system is one step toward achieving food security.
