    It's used as a guide line you cann't write the figures in stone,of course everyones space is unique extreme weather will crop up now and again take for instance I grow something that is hardy in zone 8b then it's ok down to -7c if I was Penny zone 5b -23c I wouldn't dream of trying to grow that plant.The rhs clasification is a little coarse and as Pete says soil condition can make a big difference.
