Abstract(unpublished)
This plant hardiness zones map shows the different zones in Canada where various types of trees, shrubs and flowers will most likely survive. The map is based on a formula using seven important variables that influence plant survival: 1. Monthly mean of the daily minimum temperatures of the coldest month 2. Mean frost-free period (above 0°C) in days 3. Amount of rainfall from June to November 4. Monthly mean of the daily maximum temperatures of the warmest month 5. A winter harshness index related to rainfall in January 6. Mean maximum snow depth 7. Maximum wind gust in 30 year period The original map was developed by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada in the early 1960s based on average values from 1930 to 1960. This new map uses 1981 to 2010 averages.
