I live in the Tidewater region of Virginia, 15 minutes to the Chesapeake Bay--not sure whether to put south or mid Atlantic for region.

Your zip code puts you in USDA gardening Zone: 7A. Mid Atlantic is considered zone 6B and south Atlantic is a transition zone, incorporating zones 7 and 8. When choosing plants you will be safest in choosing those that perform well in zone 7. Plants rated for zone 8 may suffer winter damage. Plants for zone 6 may need more winter cold than your garden can provide. Hope this clarifies things for you!
