Indeed, Ellen has since remembered a few more species that did well in the
snow belt: K. triangularis, K. baurii, K. typhoides, K. stricta.  As far as
I know, snow is pretty much an unmitigated blessing for perennials over the
course of the winter.  It can be less so in early spring if there's a lot
of melting and freezing, in which case it can become ice and be hard on
lower-lying plants and plants that hate wet crowns.  But nothing is perfect.
