Is there an error with the new Canadian Hardiness Zones map? The east Fraser Valley (8a) is substantially milder than Vancouver (6b & 7a)?! Vancouver is only slightly milder than Kelowna (5b & 6a)? Not from my own experience of the regions. What about yours? I queried Agriculture Canada to see if there is an error. The zone numbers were confirmed and a list of plants was given, plants which grow in each locale. Is this how they check to verify the zone of particular areas? I call on gardeners to submit to their site a list of marginally hardy plants which survived last winter. http://planthardiness.gc.ca/ph_main.pl?lang=en Maybe they need more information. Maybe I'm wrong. Then I'll be planting Hebe and Eucalyptus in Chilliwack.
