Planting Perennial Roots:
It is a good idea to soak any bare-root perennials in water for a few hours, but not more than 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.
Space the bulbs 4-6" apart and 2-4" deep in groups of at least six bulbs, plant in fall.
Grow in full sun and well-drained soil. They form large clumps and live for many years. Most require dry soil during the summer in order to bloom reliably in following years.
