According to the USDA Hardiness Zone Map Naubinway is in zone 5a. Technically zone 5 plants should do fine this includes many of those plants we find in the lower peninsula. This includes roses. To be safe choose zone 4 plants. Note that the growing season will be much shorter . Here are some links that may be helpful: Hardiness Zone Map:
