The Q&A Archives: Perennials - Pittsburgh

Question: Can you provide me with a list of perennials that will survive Pittsburgh winters? I believe I am in Zone 7. Thank you.

Answer: Pittsburgh would be more zone 5, so you will want to look for hardier plants. Some easy perennials to try would include peonies, daylilies, bulb lilies, black eyed susan, purple coneflower, iris, Siberian iris, sedum, monarda, phlox, salvia, yarrow, and hosta. There are many more, but these will get you started.
