What plants will do well?

Seems like I'm always being asked "Will this do well out here?" Well, there is an ultimate resource out there that will tell you just that. It's the USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map. Growing up, I just assumed that everyone had one of these, and would consult it regularly when planning their garden. Well, now everyone (at least those who read this blog) will wonder no longer. Here's a site that outlines the zones:

When you look up information on a plant - when buying it online or just looking in a catalog - they always mention what zone it will do well in.
