Central America, Caribbean Hardiness Map

The plant hardiness zone map below, maps zones of minimum temperatures. These give an indication of whether a plant is likely to be able to survive in a certain location based on its minimum survival temperature. This map gives no indication of maximum temperature, humidity, light and soil moisture content, all important factors on a plant’s survival.

    where did you Source this information?

    • Davis Landscape Architecture 10/07/2020 at 08:38 #

      Sourced on line from weather website, after tracking the temperature data monthly for a year and using it to record minimum temperatures. Its not perfect, particularly with global warming, but for now it is about right.

    Ambergris Caye Belize, does it have the same hardiness zone as the rest of the country?

    • Davis Landscape Architecture 13/07/2020 at 14:19 #

      Angela, thank you for your query. I believe you have spotted a mistake on our Canada, USA, Mexico map. I believe Ambergris Caye should be indicated as Zone 12, +10.0ºc – +15.6ºc. Thank you for drawing this to my attention.

    Que zona es en San Miguel El Salvador

    • Davis Landscape Architecture 21/03/2022 at 10:47 #

      Elizabeth, I would suggest San Miguel is on the border between zone 11 and zone 12. If you are in the city itself it is more likely to be zone 12.
