Yes, but I now know about hardy clems for all aspects and have quite a list of goodies. My favourite supplier here gives températures of hardiness on his labels so I now buy nothing that doesn't say -25C.
I've also discovered that Guinée and New Dawn roses which I used to have in there do not like that much cold and curl up at -20C. However Generous Gardener, Teasing Georgia, Gertrude Jekyll, Queen of Sweden, Sceptr'd Isle and Kiftsgate are fine elswehere in the garden where it isn't quite so exposed.
Evergreen viburnums, eleagnus, mahonia and choisya don't like extreme cold either but deciduous viburnum is fine.
