Long blooming perennials - Knowledgebase Question

Do you have any ideas for perennials that bloom from June until frost? All I can think of are reblooming dwarf daylilies. Those are fine, but maybe there's something even better out there that I can't think of! I'm in zone 6, full sun/partial shade.

Thanks!

I'm a daylily fan so I don't know if I'd agree that there might be something better, but there sure are lots of long blooming perennials for you to chose from:
coreopsis verticillata Zagreb
penstemon varieties (Apple Blossom, Sour Grapes, Midnight, hardy when in a dry position in winter)
geranium Russel Pritchard
Asters x Frikartii M?nch and Wunder von St?fa
Echinacea purpurea "Magnus"
Salvia micropylla varieties
Scabiosa "butterfly Blue"
gypsophila Bristol Fairy
Gaura "whirling Butterflies"
Knautia macedonica
Verbena Bonariensis (reseeds, not 100 % hardy)
Erodium pelargoniifolium
Double Heliopsis
Monarda
Malva "Zebrina"
Ligularia "The Rocket"
Hollyhocks
Kierengoshoma (Yellow Waxbells)

I'm sure there are others, but these are most reliable.
