Wow...when I first read this I thought to myself "I can't believe Joan doesn't know what plant zone means...how does she do it?"

You got me! lol

The site says I'm 3b which is true...4a in some "niches" in the yard.

I'm Zone 5b, but I'm sure I have pockets of 5, 5a and 6!
In fact, I have one little area tucked into a corner at the back of the house, which never, ever, freezes! There's a pipe close by which blows out warm air 365. I'm going to try another Cut Leaf Japanese Maple there! My first one didn't make it through its' first winter! :cry:

Thank-you Joan...that was neat. When I seen you had to add your postal code, I thought "no way would they have this one horse town listed" ( as the teens call it) but they did!!!

I am a 5a and have grown a cut leaf weeping japanese maple for about eight years in my north facing back yard. It took a really bad hit about three years ago from an ice storm in the spring but has survived...though I doubt it will ever have the lovely shape it used to.
