CENTRAL MAINE zone 4B
BR: Based on where you are on the map posted by SF, it will help you to choose plants that are well adapted to your climate. For example, I live in Zone 4. So, if I want to be sure a plant will succeed in my yard, I might choose a plant that's rated Zone 3 - 6 over one that's rated Zone 4 - 7. And any plants that are rated >/= zone 5 are a waste of time for me, unless I plan to dig them up and bring them in every fall.
