Catonsville, Maryland is located in USDA hardiness zone 7a. For reference, you can use the following website to see your growing zone: https://planthardiness.ars.usda.gov/phzmweb/interactivemap.aspx.

For perennial container plants that you want to over-winter in your zone, look for ones that are cold hardy to at least zone 5a. For example, a 'Golden Sprite' Chamaecyparis is hardy to zone 5, so that would be a suitable choice for containers. http://conifersociety.org/conifers/conifer/chamaecyparis/obtusa/golden-sprite/

You can find the hardiness zone information on the plant tags/pots when you shop at your garden center/nursery.
