Combination of advanced and zip code searches

Somerville, MA

I've found both the advanced search and the zip code search, but is there any way to combine the two?

For example, I'd like to search for vegetables and herbs that don't need full sun that are known to grow in my zip code (02144).

Belfield, ND(Zone 4a)

At this point, I don't think there is a way to search for plants by zipcode. You can search for plants that grow in your zone with the advanced search. However, most vegetables are annuals, so there isn't a zone hardiness category for them.

I was wondering why a plant would have different cold hardiness temperatures in different zones? For instance Helenium autumnale goes all the way from -39 degrees in zone 3a to 15 degrees in zone 8b.

Dublin, CA(Zone 9a)

The temperatures that you see listed next to the zone don't have anything to do with the plant, those are just the minimum temps that you'd expect to see in that zone to help provide people who might not know exactly what zone they're in with a frame of reference. So in zone 8b your typical lowest winter temperature would be 15, and in zone 3a your typical lowest temp would be -39 degrees. But a plant that's listed as being OK for zones 3-8 can handle temps down to -39 degrees.
