Planting Perennial Roots:
It is a good idea to soak any bare-root perennials in water for a few hours, but not more then a day, before planting. Add organic matter to the area and provide good drainage unless the plant variety enjoys wet roots. Unless otherwise specified, bare-root perennials are usually planted with the crown (where the shoots meet the roots) an inch below the soil surface. Firm soil gently to eliminate air pockets and water in well. Mark the area clearly since it may be awhile before the plant shows itself.
Grow in rich, moist soil in sun to part shade. Dislikes extremes of heat or drought, but will tolerate poor soil. Plant just below the soil 15-18" apart.
Mulch in autumn to protect early spring flowers from frost.
