Usually considered zone 5. In the center of a fairly large town where there is lots of traffic, industry, etc. to create a bit of heat you may slide into zone 6 in protected areas.

If you're really on the border of a zone line and REALLY want to know, get a plantsdelight Nursery catalog, which has a map in the back. I found out I was 3 miles away from being zone 6a. hahaha

Hummies- do not let the zone stuff worry you much. Just pick up a plant you like and try it. About 3/4 of the what zone a plant should be grown in on tags in Box stores are worthless.

Ozarkian:You are right;like a friend of mine says:I plant them,watered them,fertilized them,Now is their time to do their work,if they don't want to,out they go.
But you know,I'm the kind that takes a wasted twig,and plant it to see if maybe has some life in it.Bye and have a good night.!

Ozarkian:I'm new all around this territory;as you noticed I live in Raymondville,just a few miles from Licking,but still,not close enough for me to know much about it;It's surprising that you have not been able to be in contact with your cousin all these years.
We are having quite a wind around here,it seems and feels like winter is coming back...OH NO!My plants are all stressed out,but the beautiful daysies look marvelous in the field.
Bye
