Hi, You may want to check out this online publication that list some of the perennials that can be planted here in Central Oregon. When purchasing perennials buy for USDA Hardiness Zone 3-4, not 6. http://extension.oregonstate.edu/deschutes/sites/default/files/xeri-all_1.pdf

Here are some suggestions for cut flower that can be grown here, coneflower, rudbeckia, penstemon, iris, and delphinium.

Thanks,
