Q&A: How do I find out what gardening “Zone” I am in?

Question by Jmac: How do I find out what gardening “Zone” I am in?
I have been looking for annual humming bird and butterfly vines that would grow well in my area. I don’t want anything invasive.
The web sites I am looking at keep refering to certain zones…like annual for zones 3-8 and perineal for 9-10. How do I find out which one I live in??
This is serious; please don’t make fun of my rookie gardening issues.
Thank you all!! I live in the Texas Gulf Coast area and I am in zone 9! Cool, now I know! Thanks for your help! Now I just have to deal with what grows in our gumbo soil. LOL

    The lower the number the higher north it is the higher the more down south, you can plant any kind of annuals you want in any zone because they dont come back. If you buy a perrenial make sure it for your zone. Some plants need cold to go dormant other will die in the cold. It’s really quite simple once you know your zone, good luck
