Plant Hardiness of Canada

This Federal site explores the relationship between plants and climate across Canada.  One portion of the site is dedicated to plant hardiness zone maps, which have traditionally been used by gardeners to help select which plant species to grow in their area. Another part of the site features maps and models that summarize the climatic requirements of thousands of plants from across North America. 

A final aspect of the site provides summaries about plants that are specific to user identified areas.  Models and maps on the website include climate profiles that can indicate the possible range of each species under current and future climate conditions.
