Default Hi from South Carolina

I do not have a lot of succulents or cacti.
I hope to collect succulent that can live outside in zone 6 & 7.
I hope to put in a greenhouse for the more tender plants.
I have a few acres of land, so outside plants year a round appeals to me.
I like rocks, driftwood & Japanese Maples also.
Most anything that blooms, I vegetable gardening also.

Even Charleston which is about midway down the state and right on the coast is only zone 8 so 6/7 sounds about right for most of the inland part of the state.

Perhaps we aren't talking about the USDA Zones. The USDA Map I googled shows South Carolina in 8 with no 6 at all and almost no 7??

Nah we're talking about USDA zones too, but I think you're talking about the new maps, not the old ones. I can't speak for the Carolinas since I don't live there anymore, but here in WA most of us are hesitant to use the new numbers since they're so new. Especially since it's only for averages and being so far north we in the Seattle area are technically zone 8 by the new map, but once in a blue moon can get much colder weather. They say that's why the walnut farms moved to CA is that they grow really well here, but once ever 10/15 years you get a real cold snap and lose them all.
