Some figs can survive in your zone. It depends on the variety. I would still wrap it if I were you, as a precaution. The figs that can survive in your area will survive a normal winter, but cannot survive a severe winter without help. Since you cannot know ahead of time which winters will be severe, it is best to be safe than sorry. You can unwrap it once temps are above 40 F. If you get a few frosts after that, it will not harm the plant.
