Answer: Chicagoland Green is rated for zones 4-9, whereas Faulkner is rated for 5-9. Although plants rated on the borderline for a zone may perform fine for many years, if there is an unseasonably cold winter or cold snap, that can be the event that pushes them over the edge. All else being equal in your needs, I'd go with the Chicagoland. However, note that it takes full to part sun. The Faulkner takes sun or heavy shade. Determine what your sun exposure will be before making your decision. If it's in full shade, perhaps up against the house, the Faulkner may be fine. Good luck!
