Just checked mine using this sites finder by zip (95818) and it says Sacramento is 8A but we're 9b. ?

It says I'm 8b, but Sebastopol has always been 9a and is rumored to have become 9b in recent years.

Yeah, it sure looks like things have changed. We were in Daytona Beach for 43 years which was always 9a and it now shows DB as zone 9b. We now live in Sebastian, Fl which used to be listed as zone 10a and it's now listed as 9b. Confused

On the zone lookup page it says "The 1990 USDA Hardiness Zone Map" -- the map was changed in 2012 to reflect climate change, which puts a lot of us in a warmer zone; pretty much right after they did that, a lot of the country had the coldest winter in memory (including where I am) Blinking

Updating the zone finder to reflect the new hardiness zones is one of my TODO tasks.
