When Planting one of the most important pieces of information to know is your plant zone. The zone you are in is based on how cold it gets on an average winter. It helps to know this information because when you plant you do not want to put in shrubs, trees or perennials that will die.
All this said, your own yard will no doubt have its own microclimate that might be a bit colder or warmer than other areas. For example, the area nearer your house is going to be a bit warmer then an area far away from the building.
I have some plants that are zone 7, but they are protected by the house. So you can experiment with plants a bit in your own yard.
