What zone am I really in?

kimb1(z5WA)June 12, 2005

I can't find my Sunset hardiness zone guide, and I thought I remembered that we are in Zone 2, but this site also said I'm Zone 5, based on zip code. I am in eastern Washington, 3000' elevation. Anyone know for sure what this zone truly is? Thanks much!

check with your local university horticultural dept. or your state horticultural extension dept.

Here is the link to the Sunset zone guide, kimb_1. It probably is more accurate than a USDA one anyway, since that only takes into consideration your lowest winter temperature.

According to Sunset, I'm in zone 34, and it gives a good description of the climate we really have here.

Here is a link that might be useful: zone map

Dear Jetred,
The Zone Map that Cady recommended is correct. I am in zone 34 but also in zone "5" according to other maps. Hope you had a good season.
