Depending on where a plant evolved and also how it was developed by plant breeders, it may be more or less able to withstand cold or hot climates. Plants originally from tropical or subtropical regions are generally tender. Those plants that can tolerate cold temperatures and frost are considered hardy --to a lesser or greater extent. Choose plants appropriate to your region by considering the limits of your hardiness zone.
An individual difference characterized by a sense of commitment, a belief in personal control, and a willingness to confront challenge; believed to be a useful resource in coping with stressful events.
a particular constellation of personality characteristics that helps people stay healthy despite facing stressful life events. It includes (1) commitment, (2) the ability to view change as a challenge, (3) a sense of personal control over life.
The plant's ability to survive in the extreme temperatures of a particular geographic region. Plants can be cold hardy, heat tolerant, or both. Hardy is a term used to describe trees capable a withstanding winter frost. U.S. Department of Agriculture's tree and plant hardiness zone map is one good guide in helping you determine a plant's ability to withstand an average minimum temperature.
Robustesse Ausdauer, f/Zähigkeit, f Fortaleza The hardiness of a plant reflects the 60-year average minimum winter temperature of a region which it can survive at best. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) in cooperation with the National Weather Service (NWS) has identified various reg
Hardiness of plants is a term used to describe their ability to survive adverse growing conditions. It is usually limited to discussions of climatic adversity. Thus a plant's ability to tolerate cold, heat, drought, or wind are typically considered measurements of hardiness.
