: I have revived this thread so that more Sunset climate zone info can be in one place here at THG.
Zone 32 is very widespread. Such "small" towns and "nowhere" places as Knoxville, Chattanooga, Atlanta, Columbia, Charlotte, Greensboro, Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill, Petersburg, Lynchburg, Richmond, Charlottesville, Alexandria, Arlington, Annapolis, Baltimore, Wilmington, Philadelphia, and Trenton are in it. (Please note the order in which I have listed these cities: they make a great arc around the southern end of the Appalachian/Piedmont/Blue Ridge mountains and continue north along the uplands of the Atlantic Seaboard, moving towards the shore as the latitude increases.)
You might have heard of the other relatively well-known 'burg in Zone 32--Washington, D.C.
A key sentence from Sunset: "This is also the northernmost climate in which vegetables, flowers, and woody plants can be planted in fall as well as in spring."
Sound more like where you live?
