What are the best perennials to plant in Louisville I am new to the area and I come from a warmer area and I would like to plant flowers that will survive the Louisville winters.
Jefferson County Kentucky
The short answer is any perennials labeled for zone 6 or lower; climate zone numbers are lower if they will withstand lower temperatures, higher numbers need higher temperatures.
This is a list of perennials for sun:https://barren.ca.uky.edu/files/perennials_for_sunny_locations.pdf
This is for shade:https://barren.ca.uky.edu/files/perennials_for_shady_locations.pdf
You will want to pick and choose depending on height and growth habit
