Most of you are very familiar with Plant Hardiness Zones, which help you make informed decisions about what to plant based on climate. But do you know your ecoregion?
Your ecoregion is the unique combination of living and nonliving factors that set your landscape apart and determine what will flourish there. Planting your yard according to ecoregion is like snapping a missing piece into the local ecological puzzle.
You’ll type in your zip code, and get back your ecoregion, a downloadable planting guide customized for that region (compliments of the great folks at The Pollinator Partnership), and a whole bunch of other local resources specific to your area.
Make sure others know about this valuable information!
