15 Beautiful Fall Blooming Perennials - Garden Lovers Club. In Best Hardy Perennials to Plant Now, you’ll find perennial stalwarts that will power through fall with reliable color and performance, like coneflower, rudbeckia and Autumn Joy sedum. Here are a few more perennials to add to your flower beds this fall.
Before you select plants, know your hardiness zone and the light conditions in your garden. Full sun means six to eight hours of sunlight each day, part shade. A show-off in fall, fothergilla is hardy in zones 5 to 8 and blooms in mid-spring.
Mix in a partially shaded border with hostas, ferns, viburnum and foam flower. Look for dwarf variety ‘Mount Airy,’ a winner for its fall color. Fothergilla is a three season shrub with bright white.
