Planting summer perennials in fall?
I know it's definitely not an optimal time to plant summer perennials in fall. But I'm afraid my bulbs just won't make it out of soil much longer. I live in zone 7 and I mostly have gladiolus and Liatris sitting around. I know both glads and Liatris can overwinter where I live, but I haven't planted them yet and was wondering if I should?

I would go ahead and plant the Liatris bulbs, but store the Gladiola corms until spring.
