About Pennsylvania, United StatesPennsylvania, meaning Penn's woods (named after William Penn) is a large state in the eastern United States. Located inland, most of Pennsylvania is highly mountainous. The climate ranges from the colder zone of a subtropical climate in the southeast of the state to a continental climate in the west of the state. Precipitation averages are relatively constant throughout the year, and only small variation across the state, although with great variability from one year to another.
Pennsylvania is too cold to grow the tea plant commercially, but, with care, the tea plant can be grown as a garden specimen in sheltered areas in the warmest parts of the state. The state is ideal for growing a large number of herbs native to temperate climates, such as mint. The state has ample rainfall, and the flatter areas, especially in the southeast of the state, have fertile soils which make gardening and agriculture easy for nutrient-loving crops.
Although few herbs grown in Pennsylvania are commercially available on the global or national market, local farm stands and farmer's markets sometimes sell herbs produced locally in Pennsylvania.
