Hey. I have a short and sweet plant question. If your hardiness level is 5 does this mean you can only plant level 5 plants or can only plant things 5 and below?

Depends on the plant and variety. Our zone 5 summers can get pretty hot, so some plants that might thrive in zone 3 or 4 might cook in zone five during the hotter parts of the year.

There are other factors to consider such as site conditions, and micro climates in urban areas.

I've seen some zone 6 and 7 plants survive in the right conditions also.
