Hello! [flower]

I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions in regards to any plants/ flowers/ and/or vegetables that would survive a Canadian Winter...

Thank you, all!

Shanbear,

Parsnips will survive winter.
Garlic
Flowers are many perennials.
Hosta
peonies
tulips
daffodils
phlox
strawberries
yucca
All these should.

Tamara: [Embarrassed] Sorry, I am a Zone 3b.

Dodge: Thank you for the wonderful suggestions; I've printed your reply and it sits in front of me as I type this.

Shanbear you have to be careful, you are close to my zone 4a, I have trouble with some things overwintering. Rhubarb, berries are good choices.

Are you looking for plants for sun or shade?

I have a South Facing back yard so there is a lot of sun hitting it right on. My front yard is much more shady. Which type of plants do you grow in your Zone 4a? [thinker]

I get a catalog called Bluestone Perennials that has N's for good in the north. It amazes me that things that are hardy in my zone still will not be recommended for the north (like english daisies which I cannot grow [Razz] ). Here are things they recommend for north zone 3
Achillea
alchemilla
columbine
aster
bergenia
some campanulas (glomarata, poscharskyana, peachleaf)
centuaria
coreopsis
bleeding heart
maiden pinks
echinops
daylily
hosta
iris
liatris
lychnis
water forget me not
poppy
creeping phlox
polemonium
rudbeckia
tiarella
some veronica

easy list with custom search for zone 3

THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH for the suggestions and link! [kissies] I've printed your post and started checking out that site. Seems I'll have to do a little shopping! [Wink] That catalog will come in mighty handy! Again, THANKS!
