can you still plant perennials after a frost, or is it better to do it just before the first frost?

The answer depends upon the plant in question. Some are cool weather tolerant and others will die down after the first frost. As long as you don't have great expectations for lots of growth after planting, you can go ahead and plant your perennials up until the ground is frozen and impossible to dig. The plants will settle in and be ready to grow in the spring. Best wishes with your new perennials.
