From your posts, this garden looks very interesting and a pretty place to spend the afternoon. I do like the Koi pond and the tea garden most. The zone 7 plants are useful here as that includes many I can grow here in 6B, with my microclimate garden supporting many zone 7 plants.

Hi Donna - Nice to see you here.

We are only recently zone 7. NE Oklahoma was zone 6b until about 10 years ago when it heated up to 7a.

But we still have horrific ice storms, spring blizzards with 18-inch snowfall, etc.

I bet most of those plants are worth trying. Dr. Miller puts solid fences on the north side of his plants to protect them from north winds.

Keep me posted on what you try!
