New USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map

The USDA has just released its new plant hardiness zone map.  My garden is now located in USDA Hardiness Zone 7a  (0 – 5 F).  It used to be in Zone 6.  Check out their link and see where your garden is now.

Now all I can think about is what new plants can I try in my garden!  Do you grow anything in your garden that defies the “Zone”?  Please share and let’s all try something new this year.
