The USDA and Arbor Day have established Plant Hardiness Zones. The 1990 USDA Zone map supersedes the USDA Miscellaneous Publication 814 which was revised in 1965. The Arbor Day foundation created a zone map taking into account warmer temperatures recently experienced throughout much of the US. In 2003 the American Horticultural Society was commissioned by the USDA to create an updated version of their 1990 map.
