Planting zone

Asked September 6, 2016, 9:00 AM EDT

We just brought a house in Duluth. It is a fixer upper with a drainage issue. I am adding dry creeks to deal with that issue. What I can't figure out is if Duluth is the same zone as the Twin CIties. What zone is it. Do you have suggestions for plantings around a dry creek bed?

Dakota County Minnesota

Check this web page with map of Duluth. Depends on where you live as the lake moderates things for plant hardiness

Generally NE Minnesota is on the cold end of zone 4, though right next to lake it is a bit warmer. There are some spots far inland in NE MN that reach down into zone 3. See also
