About the Lower South Region

The Lower South stretches from coastal Virginia down to central Georgia and across to central Texas. The Lower South has sizzling, lengthy and very humid summers paired with mild winters and a short spring and fall. Summer temperatures range between 90-100°F while the winter varies from 36-70°F, with brief cold temperatures in the low 20s°F. Rainfall averages 40-50 inches annually, but western central Texas may only get 24 inches. Soil typically has a pH under 6, meaning it’s acidic, and it’s sandy, loamy, and in Texas, may be clay.
