The Pacific Northwest region is a geographic area in western North America, typically including the U.S. states of Washington and Oregon, as well as the Canadian province of British Columbia. Some definitions may also include parts of Idaho, Montana, and Alaska, depending on the context. The region is known for its diverse landscape, featuring everything from coastal rainforests and fertile valleys, to rugged mountains and high deserts.

Gardening in the Pacific Northwest presents a unique set of challenges and opportunities due to its varied climate, which can range from mild coastal areas to cooler mountainous regions.

Perennial flowers are fabulous additions to the garden with their rich waves of colorful blooms that can be enjoyed from spring to fall. And gardeners in the Pacific Northwest region are blessed with a wide variety of herbaceous perennials to pick from.

While many gardens are at their best in spring and summer, attention should also be given to their fall display too. Many spectacular late-flowering perennials have the potential to revive your garden in the fall and extend color and joy in your landscape.

If you are looking for beautiful, low-maintenance, and hardy plants for your late summer or fall garden, you may want to consider these top performing perennials which will happily carry color through the end of the growing season.
