National Gardening Association

Use the Zip Zone map to determine what zone your urban park is in so that you can determine the plants that would grow best in your urban park. After you enter you city and learn your zone, try searching some different plants. Make sure you have a good mix of color blooming year-round. Read the descriptions carefully and make a list of the plants you will be using in your garden as well as the colors. (Don't forget you will be making a photo-story for your urban space.)
