Yes, this is a perennial. Perennials do well when planted in the fall. Plant as soon as possible. Since we are in an extended drought, it helps to fill the planting hole with water one or two times and let the water soak into the surrounding soil before you plant the flower in the hole. Then water , of course. Monitor the rainfall. Do not let your plants go into the winter in dry soil.
