Are there any perennials that should be planted in the fall? At our blog we're featuring fall and winter gardening and I'd love to tell our readers about your favorites.
when you dig your potatoes and other root crops you can try leaving a few in to overwinter and they may regrow kinda like a perennial too..and leave things like a couple parsnips, carrots, salsify, etc to go to seed..always remember reseeding things now and things that will be producing seed bearing fruits or nuts that can be planted for next years baby plants...and many things can be divided safely for another month or two

I live in the high desert - zone 7. Not sure what else I could possible make perennial except maybe garlic. We have been able to winter over chard, carrots, collards, and parsnips. I need to look up that camass...as that is new to me.
If garlic will overwinter for you, onion probably will also. You could try parsley if that's an herb you enjoy.
