Sure! Why not?
Many plant nurseries are tired of caring for those plants. They have struggled to keep them healthy through a long, hot, dry summer! Now it's time to make room for the chrysanthemums and other autumn flowers. What should they do with the old plants? Put them on sale!
Aim for the perennials that can spend the autumn and winter establishing themselves, and come up all beautiful in YOUR garden in the spring!
If you see perennials in some big box stores, check them carefully before buying. AND be sure they are plants that will flourish in your zone. Then give them a try. The prices are usually good at those stores anyway. I usually don't encourage buying plants there, but at half price or even less, why not give them a try? If they make it, you're ahead of the game. If they don't, well, I guess that's the way it goes.
