Brrr!  What zone is that?
We have a summer cabin in the high Sierra.  I think our last freeze is
something like July 15 in the morning, and the first freeze is July 15th in
the evening ;-) 
Midsummer is actually warm up there, but any night can hit freezing.

it's the altitude that does it.  If these temperatures occur with much
frequency, I doubt either Doyle or Triple Crown floricanes would survive
without protection.  I knew you were seeking this info for someone else, but
since you didn't tell us where this someone else lives, I addressed the
hardiness issue based on the info I had available.  With any luck, that
someone may be in a warmer location.

Yep, it's cold here.  Winters are LONG too:  last frost date
is theoretically June 1, and can be as late as June 20.
There have even been (very rare, thankfully) frosts here in
July and August.

On the other hand, summers are usually very pleasant, we
almost never need air-conditioning.  Spring and Fall are
glorious here.
