Fall Perennial Garden Zone 3 Canada (Images)
Often for me in Zone 3, by the third week of September there is not much happening in the perennial garden. We only average 123 frost free days a year. This year we are at 139 frost free days and still no frost but getting close.
I took these pictures on Sept. 21. This is a sunny garden with 10-13 hours of sun average per day from May to August. Drought tolerant is the key.
The plants are not at all rare: Sedum Autumn Joy and Matrona, Globe Thistle, Echinacea Magnus, Rudbeckia Goldsturm, Karl Foerster Reed Grass, Geranium sanguinium striatum.
