I know there are quite a few gardeners on this forum. What is our hardiness zone in Loudoun County?

We're zone 7 here in Mount Vernon as far as I can tell. Probably that or 6B out there I'm guessing. You can plug in your zip code here and find out:

I'm a 7 here in eastern Loudoun. Western Loudoun used to be 6B but is more like 7 now thanks to global climate change. See the Arbor Day Foundation's interactive map for more info.

It's amazing how much that map has changed in just 20 years.

If you trust that map you may be sorry.

UHI (which is what is actually responsible for much surface warming) will not stop serious freeze.

Thanks! I'll stick to zone 7 then.

Yes, zone 7. FWIW, I have noted my neighbors are starting to plant an increasing number of zone 8 plants with success (if they cover them in the winter). They will be tender, of course, and may look a little out of place.
